Summary

The first of a new series of young fiction by Jenny Valentine, winner of the Guardian Children’s Fiction Prize for her debut novel, Finding Violet Park.

Iggy and Me is a series of family stories featuring the mishaps and shenanigans of the irrepressible 5-year-old Iggy as seen through the eyes of her big sister Flo.

Funny and endearing, each chapter is a complete and satisfying story in its own right, perfect for newly-confident readers to enjoy alone, or for reading aloud at bedtime.

Illutrated throughout in with black & white line drawings by Joe Berger, who was nominated for the Booktrust Early Years Award for his picture book, Bridget Fidget.

A great success

My 6 year-old daughter has listening to this innumerable time, so I'm glad this was a download not a tape that would have been destroyed through over-use before now.

There must be something about Iggy that touches a chord. I’ve had to listen to brief passages, and I found the narration clear and the other characters very believable.

Recommended.
