The fourth book in the Iggy series about the lovable troublemaker from New York Times bestselling author of Ivy + Bean.

Grownups are always changing the rules!



When grown-ups make money, it’s good. But when Iggy makes money, all of a sudden it’s bad.



When grown-ups find something interesting on the sidewalk, it’s finders keepers. But when Iggy finds something (very) interesting, finders keepers turns into You’re In Trouble.



Why is Iggy being blamed for something they never said he couldn’t do?



What did he do, you ask? Something legendary!

THE PRAISE DOESN’T STOP: The Best of Iggy has received several accolades including: the Indie Bestseller list, Winter 2019-2020 Kids Indie Next List, Junior Library Guild selection, and it’s on five state award lists already. And Iggy Is the Hero of Everything just received a star from Kirkus—a rarity for a third book in a series.

ROCKSTAR AUTHOR: To meet Annie is to love Annie. She’s as hilarious as Iggy and instantly wins over gatekeepers and kids alike. She’s a NYT bestseller with the wildly popular Ivy + Bean series, and The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society.

FOUR BOOKS ON SHELVES: The first four books in the Iggy series will have pubbed in less than two years, satisfying kids that love to fly through a series and bringing in new readers looking for their next one to binge.

ANNIE’S SUBLIMINAL MESSAGE: Underneath the hilarity, Iggy is learning that blame is complicated, and someone else’s mistake isn’t usually the best excuse for your own.

THE EPITOME OF A RASCAL: Iggy is a truly distinct character—cool, daring, funny, irreverent, unpredictable—all the things that will keep kids reading.

SUPER FUNNY ILLUSTRATIONS: Sam Ricks’ hilarious interior artwork illuminates Annie’s distinct voice, and illustrated middle grade is as popular as ever and continues to grow.

GREAT BACKSTORY: Iggy was inspired by Annie’s husband who was a huge troublemaker as a boy. (What he and his friends did were MUCH worse than Iggy.)

PAPERBACKS COMING!: Plans are in the works for Iggy paperbacks to start coming out in spring 2023.

Annie Barrows (she/her) regrets to report that she is to blame for the following things: dropping the iron on the kitchen floor (twice); microwaving her children’s sippy cups (sorry about that, kids); and declaring in print that komodo dragons don’t poop (they do).  Everything else she ever did was fine. Even the thing with the Barbie shoes. It wasn’t her idea.

Praise for Iggy The Legend:

“Amusing…Short chapters and engaging text will make this a fun and accessible work for those who are newer to chapter books. Readers will enjoy Iggy’s silliness and his attempts to prove that he is not 100 percent to blame for his actions. Readers will enjoy continuing Iggy’s adventures.” —School Library Journal
