Iggy Peck Architect

My husband brought our 4 year old son this book back from his trip to Vancouver.
My son adores this book and loves the pictures. 
We've been reading it every night ever since he received it.  It's funny and charming and captures the attention and imagination of children and adults alike.
Iggy Peck is a creative and independent little boy who is not afraid to express himself.
He has a special talent and he's different from your typical second grader but Iggy embraces his uniqueness and shows that being different is good.

"Iggy has one passion: building. His parents are proud of his fabulous creations, though they’re sometimes surprised by his materials—who could forget the tower he built of dirty diapers? When his second-grade teacher declares her dislike of architecture, Iggy faces a challenge. He loves building too much to give it up! With Andrea Beaty’s irresistible rhyming text and David Roberts’s puckish illustrations, this book will charm creative kids everywhere, and amuse their sometimes bewildered parents."
