Iggy Who Breathes Fire

Carrie Kruck

Meet Iggy, a fiery new hero who knows exactly what she's about--no matter what others think.

This hilarious picture book celebrates self-awareness and is perfect for fans of IMOGENE'S ANTLERS and THE PAPER BAG PRINCESS.

Iggy was born to set the world on fire--literally. Her parents aren't so sure. They bring in the experts--a professor, fire chief, librarian, and doctor--who suggest everything from eating ice cream to sitting in a cold room, but none can help her tame her fire.

Hilarious and heartwarming (get it?) in equal measure, IGGY WHO BREATHES FIRE celebrates that kids are the true experts when it comes to their own identity, and it's up to them to decide when and how to share themselves with the world.
