Iggy Peck is an architect.  He loves nothing more than to build castles out of chalk and towers out of diapers, but not everyone appreciates his passions–especially his teacher.  Banned from building, he languishes in school.  But soon, Iggy and his classmates find themselves in a pickle that only architecture can solve, and his teacher learns that there’s a place for every child’s passions in the classroom.  Both the story and art are lively and refreshing, and the fun rhyme scheme is sure to make this a repeated request at bedtime.

~ Susan Chodakiewitz is the author of the children’s picture book Wobegon and Mildred–the story of two unlovable monsters who find one another while giving out parking tickets–and the founder ofBooksicals, Encouraging Reading Through the Arts.~
