Weekend Recommendation #7

I have a book that is actually written and illustrated by two DIFFERENT people!  Crazy, right?

I've actually had this book recommended to me for many years, but it was one that I always forgot about until it was staring me right in the face.  It is I Wanna Iguana by Karen Kaufman Orloff and illustrated by David Catrow.  It is not a rhymer, despite the name.  It is a series of notes between mother and son about the addition of an iguana to the family.  It totally reminds me of the little notes my oldest son leaves me!  It is very cute and a clever and unique way to present a book.  Check it out!


  1. Lovely. I invited the children in the local infant school to illustrate my picture book. :0)

  2. That sounds adorable! No picture books is one thing I miss about my kids not being little any longer. I do pick them up quite a bit when I'm in the bookstore though.

  3. I love that book! I should check it out again.

  4. Hey, Megan, I dropped by to tell you that you are the winner of my giveaway! Send me a DM on twitter or friend connect with your address, and I'll DM you back the interview for your post (and mail you your stuff, of course)! Also, let me know if you'd like to guest post. Congratulations! :D
