I would have liked Flo and Iggy to have been described more so I could have imagined them better. I thought the book was good but the storyline was a bit babyish for me.

Synopsis

More adventures of the irrepressible Iggy as told by her sister Flo, by Jenny Valentine, winner of the Guardian Children’s Fiction Prize for her debut novel, Finding Violet Park.

At home, all Iggy could think and talk about was babies.
“Pleeease have one more, “ she said. “Just one.”

Iggy is OBSESSED with babies and wants more than anything in the world to have a new baby brother or baby sister to play with. But mum is far too tired to have another baby - she says just thinking about having another one makes her tired, so when Iggy’s Auntie Kate comes to visit all the way from America with some very special news, Iggy can’t believe her luck.

This is the third outing for Jenny Valentine’s endearing siblings. 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.

Illustrated 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.
