Overview

Iggie's house just wasn't the same. Iggie was gone, moved to Tokyo. And there was Winnie, cracking her gum on Grove Street, where she'd always lived, with no more best friend and two weeks left of summer.

Then the Garber family moved into Iggie's house — two boys, Glenn and Herbie, and Tina, their little sister. The Garbers were black and Grove Street was white and always had been. Winnie, a welcoming committee of one, set out to make a good impression and be a good neighbor. That's why the trouble started.

Glenn and Herbie and Tina didn't want a "good neighbor." They wanted a friend.

Judy Blume's body of work returns to her original editor, Richard Jackson, with the rerelease of four classics in hardcover. An African-American family moves to all-white Grove Street in Iggie's House, to be released in April. The author's breakthrough title, Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret, about 11-year old Margaret Simon's struggles with puberty and religion, is now available in hardcover as well as in a Spanish-language edition, Estas ahi Dios? Soy yo, Margaret.

Meet the Author

When Judy Blume was growing up, she dreamed about becoming a cowgirl, a detective, a spy, a great actress or a ballerina -- certainly not a writer, although she always loved to read and make up stories inside her head. When she grew up, her need for storytelling didn't go away, and Judy began writing her stories down on paper.

Twenty-two books, all of them still in print, followed. Millions of readers all over the world rely on Judy Blume books to portray the difficulties and joys of growing up with honesty and humor. Judy says, "While the way we live may have changed, what's deep inside us hasn't."

Judy lives with her husband George Cooper. They have three grown children between them and one grandchild, whose first word was "book!"

Winnie is a smart, 11 year old girl with a tom boyish personality. When the African - American Garber family moves into Iggie's house, Winnie makes friends right away, but she's the only one. This is an amazing book. I loved it!!

The book that I am doing is Iggies House. I thought that it was a great book! The book was so great that I would like to read it again. The main charters were Winnie, Iggie, Glenn, Herbie, and Tina. Iggie had to move away so Winnie became sad. A Africam American family moved into Iggies old house. Winnie wanted to make friends with the new family. But how can the new family make good friends if they were the only African American family on the block. I would recamend this book to other kids because I thought it was easy and exciting to read. That was my book report on Iggies House.

Iggies House is a great book. For a book report we had to make a play of a scene in the book and I was Winnie. My group chose the scene when Ms.Landon tells the Barringers that Clarice and her are moving away because(in Ms. Landon's words)them. It was really hard to do ,but it was fun because we had a lot of out takes, but we had to practice a lot.I hope if you read it,you will like it as much as I did!

we have purchases several of your books with joy. However now that we know you openly support the genocide of babies by PPH we as a family of values can no longer support you. Sorry, it was good while it lasted, but you are now on the banned list.

This book was a very good book. It is a story about segregation, and hope, but by far most, it is a story about friendship and staying true to the people you care for, even when times are tough. Awesome book!
