Max and Izzy in 'Where's My Iggy?'
Max and Izzy in ‘Where’s My Iggy?’
By: Catherine Isom
Published May 19, 2011
My Rating: ★★★★☆
This is a children’s adventure book that is recommended for children ages 4 to 10.
It is Max’s birthday and his beloved stuffed piggy has been pig-napped!! It is up to Max and his mischievous sister Izzy to find Iggy before Max’s big day is completely ruined. Much to Izzy’s delight, the clues that the pig-napper left behind lead them to many of her favorite places to snack. Coincidence?
I received a copy of this charming book for review.
After my initial read, I probably would have rated this about three stars, but after speaking further with the author, I decided to bump my rating up. The copy I received did not have illustrations, but Catherine told me that she has an illustrator working on that right now. I think pictures would be a tremendous improvement on an already adorable story. There were also some minor errors which just needed a quick proofing job to clear up. I pointed these out to Catherine, so those changes will be made as well.
Aside from those slight technical things, the actual story of Max, Izzy, and Iggy is absolutely delightful! I read this with my six-year-old son who said his favorite part was that it was Max’s birthday and they were on a type of scavenger hunt for his best pal. Even without the pictures, he was able to fully enjoy the mini adventure that we were taken on with the siblings.
I have already told Catherine that I would love to purchase an illustrated copy when it is available, and I encourage you all to do the same!
