The third book in the Iggy series about the lovable troublemaker from New York Times bestselling author of Ivy + Bean.
From Iggy's point of view, his plan was genius, pure genius. From Iggy's point of view, he's saved (a) his candy, (b) his family, and (c) the toaster. From Iggy's point of view, he should get a trophy. And respect. And more candy.
So what if Rudy Heckie disagrees? Rudy Heckie has been wrong before and he'll be wrong again. Rudy has a scar now, and scars are cool! He should be happy. So should Mr. Heckie. So should Iggy's mom and dad. Everyone should be happy. Specifically, everyone should be happy with Iggy.
But are they? It all depends on your point of view.
In the third installment of Annie Barrows's series about the secret joys of causing trouble, readers will learn about the power of interpretation (but we all know who's really right).
