Iggy Peck Architect

With a name like ‘Ignatious Peck’, you are destined for a creative life. At age 2, our hero ‘Iggy Peck, Architect’ creates a mud Sphinx in the back garden, and a Renaissance-style tower out of glue and dirty diapers. When Iggy goes to school, he encounters Miss Lila Greer, a teacher who once suffered an unfortunate incident in a very tall building and bans Iggy from architecture. Little do they know that Iggy’s skills will prove indispensable when a class excursion comes to a sticky end …

Reading this book aloud, you can’t help but ham up the hilariously quirky, rhyming text. Iggy will wow young Duplo fans aged 2 plus. And design-conscious parents will appreciate the illustrations, showcasing all the coolest elements of 50’s and 60’s fashions.

Iggy Peck Architect by Andrea Beaty, US$16.95. Amazon
