SUMMARY OF THE MENTOR TEXT: 

Iggy Peck, Architect is about Iggy Peck and the different structures he builds. He has been building since he was two, and his parents have always supported his dream and creations.

When Iggy Peck goes to school, he becomes disappointed because his teacher says that talking about architecture and building structures is not allowed at school. However, he doesn’t let this squash his passion.

Boys and girls will love hearing this story about Iggy Peck and the wonderful structures he creates.
