Iggy and me by Jenny Valentine

cover image

HarperCollins, 2009. ISBN 9780007283620.
(Ages: 6-10) Award winning author of The Ant Colony and Finding Violet Park, Jenny Valentine has created a couple of very funny characters in Iggy and her older, long suffering sister, Flo. The scrapes they get into will have instant appeal to middle primary students, who will instantly recognize all the sorts of things they get up to at home. Iggy's world is totally self centred, as she marches through the day, expecting everyone to fall in line with what she wants to do. From cutting her own hair with disastrous results, finding out what a mirage is, to demanding that everyone call her Iggy instead of her real name, both girls in this book will endear themselves to the reader.
