The third book in the Iggy series about the lovable troublemaker by New York Times bestselling author Annie Barrows (Ivy + Bean).

From Iggy’s point of view, his plan was genius, pure genius. From Iggy’s point of view, he’s saved (a) his candy, (b) his family, and (c) the toaster. From Iggy’s point of view, he should get a trophy. And respect. And more candy.

So what if Rudy Heckie disagrees? Rudy Heckie has been wrong before and he’ll be wrong again. Rudy has a scar now, and scars are cool! He should be happy. So should Mr. Heckie. So should Iggy’s mom and dad. Everyone should be happy. Specifically, everyone should be happy with Iggy.

But are they? It all depends on your point of view.Black-and-white illustrations.

Praise & Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 2-4–Nine-year-old Iggy is this book’s main character. Which means, in his mind, he’s the most important one and the hero of everything in the story. He has a vivid imagination, the best of intentions, and a knack for getting into trouble. When the Heckies, his neighbors, are robbed and Rudy Heckie’s Halloween candy is taken, Iggy gets nervous. When he overhears his parents offering Rudy the rest of his Halloween candy, Iggy decides to take matter into his own hands. First, he uses the strongbox his grandfather gave him to protect the rest of his candy. Then he starts digging a hole to capture the thieves when they come again. Will his plan work, or will everything go wrong? The illustrations are fun and engaging and complement the text well. The plot is simple but entertaining. Iggy is a humorous, realistic character that young readers will identify with. The other characters are a little two-dimensional, but understandable considering the story is told through Iggy’s perspective. Iggy is cued as white. VERDICT Readers who like Megan McDonald’s “Stink” series will enjoy this book. A great addition to libraries where humorous realistic fiction is popular.–Kira Moody, Salt Lake County Lib. Svcs.
