Product Details


★ “The first of a series, this slender chapter book is inviting to pick up, hard to put down, and near-impossible to read without laughing out loud.” –Booklist, starred review

“Barrows’s omniscient narrative voice is brilliant. . . Fellow fourth graders will love Iggy for his honesty and humor. But everyone will probably love him most for his motto: ‘It Seemed Like a Good Idea at the Time.'” —The New York Times Book Review

“Fabulously funny and perceptive . . . Let’s just say that children with impish tendencies will finish this book feeling seen and understood. And the next time they get into trouble, you can expect to hear all about the extenuating circumstances.” –The Wall Street Journal

“[A] lively illustrated series opener about Iggy Frangi, a mischievous, good-hearted nine-year-old who frequently lands himself in trouble and only sometimes regrets it. . . With Iggy, Barrows (the Ivy and Bean series) has created a realistic kid—passionate, funny, and sometimes misguided—whom readers will surely root for as he gains awareness of the relationship between choices and consequences.” –Publishers Weekly
“The portrait of a boy as a young rascal. . . Funny, silly, and fairly empathetic—and perhaps even consoling to young, impulsive people who hope to be better (someday).” –Kirkus Reviews 

“The lovable screwup is an old but perennially appealing trope, and Iggy is a prime example, clueless to how his actions might affect others, frustratingly lacking in foresight but also oddly admirable in his carefree spirit. . . Young readers, especially those with a passion for mischief, will hope there are more chapters of Iggy’s exploits to come.” –The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

“Fans of Barrows’s ‘Ivy + Bean’ series and books about kids who often find themselves landing in trouble will appreciate this laugh-out-loud tale.” –School Library Journal

“Humorous and action filled . . . they [students] will be reminded that reading can be fun.” –School Library Connection
