Editorial Reviews

Review

★ “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

About the Author

Annie Barrows did none of the things in this book. As a kid, Annie Barrows was good and sweet and well-behaved. All the time, she was good. At least, no one ever caught her doing anything bad, which is the same as being good. She was so good that birds landed on her fingertips and sang. She was so good that people gave her candy for no reason. She was so good that her teachers cried when she went to the next grade.
She got worse when she grew up.

Sam Ricks is the illustrator of the Geisel Award-winner Don't Throw it to Mo! and the Stinkbomb and Ketchup-Face books. He lives with his family in Utah. Twitter @Samuelricks / Website samricks.com --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

Annie Barrows writes for both grownups and children. If you’re a grownup, read this paragraph:

Annie Barrows is the co-author, with her aunt Mary Ann Shaffer, of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, published by the Dial Press in 2008. An international best-seller, translated into 38 languages, the novel was adapted into a feature film in 2018. Her best-selling second novel, The Truth According to Us, was published in 2015. Annie lives in Berkeley, California, with her family.

If you’re a kid, read this paragraph:

Wow! Was that boring or what? Annie has written a bunch of books for kids. In fact, she has written NINETEEN books for kids, and all of them are very very good. Mostly, they’re funny too. She has written the award-winning series Ivy + Bean; the also-award-winning Magic Half and its sequel, Magic in the Mix; Nothing, for young adult readers (that means it has bad words in it); a picture book called What John Marco Saw (don’t worry—she didn’t draw the pictures); and The Best of Iggy, which is the first book in a new series about—you guessed it!—a kid named Iggy who does not play the cello, plant flowers by the side of the road, or learn his lesson and become a better person. Still, he’s a pretty great kid.
