Book Description

All Iggy Rose wants is for the kids at the Naysayer Academy to like him, and one special girl in particular. But instead, he gets teased and taunted. Every day, he eats alone in the cafeteria and gets beaten up after school on the playground. But when a cruel prank leads to Iggy’s escape from the academy, a wild, unimaginable adventure begins.

Why is King Naysayer offering a hefty reward for Iggy’s capture? When Iggy joins forces with an eclectic cast of characters, he discovers the answer. But before he can escape from the kingdom of Naysayer, Iggy must first reclaim what is rightfully his. Does this sad, lonely boy have the courage to battle the biggest school bully, a mean headmistress, and a greedy, cruel king? Will Iggy finally believe in himself and discover his true destiny?


Editorial Reviews

Review

San Francisco Book Review - 5 out of 5 stars
"An excellent book. Full of suspense, humor, and fantasy. This storybook is one to treasure. The illustrations are cute, the story is creative, and every little thing makes it the perfect children's book. The plot has unexpected turns and twists and will keep readers flipping through pages. Readers are sure to love the main character just as much as the fun cliff hanging story. The book is going to be devoured by readers of any type, whether they're looking for some fun fiction, a comical read, or a page-turner."

The Pen and Muse Book Reviews - 5 out of 5 stars

"Fynn's book reminded me a bit of Harry Potter, but he adds his own cast of characters and a boy (Iggy), fun dialogue, and an amazing story that you can't help but root for. If you are looking for a great book to get your kids hooked on, then I recommend the Prince Iggy series."

Indie Reader Top Book Pick - 5 out of 5 stars
"A charming story about finding out who you are and following your heart...incorporates magic, suspense and surprises...The illustrations complement the narrative, capturing the emotions of the characters and mood of the story with the soft and dreamy tonal sketches."

Foreword Clarion Review - 4 out of 5 stars
"Fynn is adept at making scenes come to life...It's the first of a planned juvenile fiction series and conveys messages of perseverance and resilience while weaving an entertaining yarn."  

Kirkus Reviews
"An entertaining fantasy with a quirky, inventive storyline that shows how things invariably turn out badly for bullies. The underlying message that bullying never pays is handled with skill, and a humorous approach keeps the story light."

I had a hard time with this book at first. The beginning 31 pages talk about how horrid of a life Stinky Iggy had at the Naysayer Academy. Iggy was abandoned as a baby and found by the people of Naysayer. As he grew up, he was bullied by everyone- even the girl he likes so much. Kids and adults alike treated him terribly. Then the king of Naysayer comes to the class and steals the only thing that Iggy holds dear- his ruby ring that he had with him since he was a baby.

One day a bird flies by the classroom window. The bird has a necklace on that matches the ring Iggy is wearing. The school bully throws Iggy in a trash drop after school, and the bird (who is actually a human under a spell) tells a pirate to come rescue Iggy. This is when we find out that Iggy is actually a prince that was lost at sea after his evil aunt killed his mom and dad (the king and queen) so she could be the queen of her land.

Iggy meets the four people who tried to save him from his aunt. They were taking Iggy to hide him from her, but the queen caused a storm and everyone believe that Iggy drowned. Of course he didn't and so he is going back to take over his proper place on the throne. First Iggy has to believe in himself in order to escape the King of Naysayer, his awful teacher, and the crowd of students that his teacher had turned into rats until they brought Iggy back to Naysayer.

The book gets better after the bullying from the students stops. The abuse wasn't limited to Iggy, his teacher was held by her feet over a balcony by the king. He made her promise she'd bring Iggy back before he let her up. To me this was a bit violent for a kid's book. By the end of the book I was enjoying myself and looking forward to the second story in the series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great story. July 3, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
The story is very imaginative and well written. You sympathize with Iggy right from the start, being that he seems to be the only person with any sort of moral compass. Everyone else thinks its okay to lie, cheat and do whatever they want. Since he is so drastically different, he is bullied as a way to break him enough to conform…and for the bullies own personal amusement. He is affected in the beginning but as his character develops, he realizes that the bullies were wrong and he gains confidence.

All of the other characters were also well written and developed. The plot moves along well too. The illustrations by Richie Vicencio are also very good and help bring scenes to life. I started out reading it my daughter, but she’s a little young for it right now. There is a little bit of language in it, but it’s nothing bad.

Overall, the story was very entertaining. I don’t think its appropriate for very young readers, but it’s fine for older ones.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Boy Named Iggy July 16, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is a wonderful journey, and a great children’s read. It’s all about a boy, a boy named Iggy. He is a student at the Naysayer Academy in the Kingdom of Naysayer…and it’s unlike any kingdom I’ve ever read about or seen in film. In the Kingdom on Naysayer, the king is indulged in a way as old as time: threats.

The king has a Tower of Torture that he heralds at every opportunity, and all follow in his stead to keep the king hopping happy, especially the Naysayer Academy headmistress, Miss Spitfire.

Iggy is the runt of Naysayer Academy, picked on by all, especially his roommate Teddy. But after a disastrous visit from the king, and the loss of one of Iggy’s personal items, Iggy is tormented by his schoolmates – moreso than usual.

Iggy is stuck in a rather odorous place, with no way and no hope of getting out, and a stranger appears. It seems Iggy is more than just the runt of Naysayer Academy, or so this stranger says, but it will take a band of good people to prove such.

By the end of the book, Iggy has gained a considerable amount of confidence and bravery, compared to the Naysayer Academy runt he started out as. A great read with quite an adventure: a captain, a professor, a poet, and a magician (of sorts), a white elephant, a band of rats…and the constant threat of unheard of tortures!

Prince Iggy and the Kingdom of Naysayer is an Imaginative, magical epic fantasy adventure for young readers. It is so entertaining and and comical that I, a 35 year old adult, sat down and read it all in one sitting.

Prince Iggy and the Kingdom of Naysayer delivers a message about bullying and believing in yourself without beating you over the head with it. When we meet Iggy at the beginning of the story he is a hopeless, bullied orphan with no friends. As the story moves on he learns that he is more than what others says about him and he begins to develop self confidence.

Prince Iggy and the Kingdom of Naysayer will delight your kids, keep them interested and even cause them to laugh out loud. The only reason that I’m giving it 4 stars instead of 5 is because the author uses two curse words (Not the worse ones, but unnecessary in my opinion) in the story and as a parent I think parents should know what their child is reading. If your child is younger than 12, you should read with your child so that you can discuss the language and the bullying, that goes on in the book, at times it is hardcore.

This book was so enjoyable and ended at a cliffhanger that I immediately read the next one cover to cover in one sitting. I HAD to know what happened to iggy.
