What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

Praise for the Iggy Loomis series:
 
“Piles on the yuks…. It doesn't take psychic powers to see how this could be a crowd pleaser.”
Kirkus Reviews
 
“Allison creates a comically put-upon older brother in Daniel in a lighthearted story that captures the chaos of everyday family life, superpowers or not.”
Publishers Weekly
 
Praise and Accolaides for Jennifer Allison's Gilda Joyce series:
 

• "Allison's debut novel introduces a spunky, appealingly eccentric 13-year-old who identifies with Harriet the Spy and may well rival her for readers' affections." – Publishers Weekly, starred review
 

• "Will make readers giggle out loud." – School Library Journal, starred review
 

• "[Allison] not only offers a credible mystery...but also, by allowing readers inside the heads of both girls, provides particularly strong characterizations–much more substantial than the ubiquitous first-person narrative would have offered." – Booklist, starred review

Daniel Loomis has the world’s worst little brother (Iggy). Iggy always breaks Daniel’s toys and he is VERY annoying and he is always getting into Daniel’s stuff. When Daniel meets a new kid next door named Alistair, Daniel is happy because he thinks he can spend more time over at his new friend’s house and avoid being around Iggy. Well it turns out that Alistair is actually an alien and Iggy eats some bug DNA from Alistair’s backpack. Iggy ends up getting super powers from the DNA and now Iggy’s SUPER strong, SUPER powerful and SUPER annoying! What is Daniel going to do? I think this is a pretty funny read. Ms. Allison really gets the relationship between Daniel and Iggy. The brothers are so totally believable (then you get to the fun fantasy alien DNA part ;) ). Daniel is a great character. He is a lot like me, I have a younger sibling (although I have a younger sister not a brother but I don’t think she ever ate bug DNA but who knows?) and I like to build things. The book has a fun story that isn’t real involved, but it makes it perfect for younger kids and reluctant readers. The simple black and white illustrations are all throughout the book and really add to the story. Overall, I think this silly story is especially perfect for boys. I really liked the ending to the story and am looking forward to a sequel! *NOTE* I got a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review

My children love this book!  It is relatable to any child having a younger sibling : )  It's also a fast paced book that holds a young readers' attention.  I love the short chapters for children starting to read independently (not too overwhelming!)  I also love that it still embeds some good vocabulary.  Highly recommend!!!

I just purchased this book for my grandchildren and they loved it so much that they wouldn't put it down ! It was a fun read and a laugh-outloud book.  I would highly recommend it to other young readers.
