Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

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. Two additional titles came out last season: Blubber takes on preteen teasing; and It's Not the End of the World explores the effects of divorce.

Review

"The purpose is worthy, and the most perceptive aspect of the book is the interpretation of the reaction of the black family."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books.

This is a story about a girl named Winnie that soon finds out you cannot judge a book by its cover. Her bestfriend moved to Japan and the new people that moved in were black. Being the first black family in the neighborhood, it made many people very upset. Mrs. Landan was a neighbor that was so upset she wanted to get a petition signed to make them move away. After a short time the new kids,Glenn, Herbie, and Tina, became friends with Winnie. When this happened, Winnie decided to help get them to stay and for people to be nice to them. At the end of the story the new family ended up staying and the mean Mrs. Landan moved away. It was perfect.
I loved the story because it was easy to read and interesting. I can't imagine not liking someone because they were a different color then me. I liked Winnie because she figured this out before anyone. I am glad it is not like that where I live. I recommend it to kids 9 and up only and I think adults should read it too if they are like Mrs. Landan.

"Iggie's House" is about an 11-year-old girl, Winnie Barringer, who befriends her new neighbors (the Garbers, who have two sons--Glenn and Herbie--and a daughter--Tina) when her best friend (Iggie) moves out of the house they move into. While Winnie doesn't have a problem with the Garbers being black, several of her neighbors do since the area had always been occupied by white residents. So out of loyalty to her new friends, Winnie sets out to crusade against the racism in her neighborhood.
Although "Iggie's House" isn't my favorite Judy Blume book (though I doubt I'll ever give her less than 5 stars on any book), she's great at tackling social problems, such as racism in this book, showing how children typically see things in just black and white, so to speak. Though prejudices aren't as easily overcome as shown here, "Iggie's House" is still a great learning tool for preteens.

A Kid's Review on November 9, 2006
Format: Hardcover
This book is short and you can read it in a couple of days or if you love to read it may only take you a couple of hours. The book is about a girl named Winnie whose best friend moves away and her best friends house is sold to a black family named the Gerbers. Know one in the neighborhood likes them. Every one in their neighborhood is white.

This book teaches a valuable lesson that color of skin does not matter. You can hang out with who ever you want no matter what your nationality . Some people think skin color matters and that black people and white people shouldn't hang out together. This book teaches you that it's okay to.

A Kid's Review on April 15, 2001
Format: Paperback
Iggie's House is one of my most favorite Judy Blume books.This book is about a girl named Winnie that becomes friends with the Garber children , Tina, Glenn,and Herbie, who live in Winnie's old friends house named Iggie. There's only one problem. Mrs. Landon (a.k.a. Mrs. Germs) doesn't want the Garbers to live in the neighborhood because they are black. Some parts that I really disliked was when Mrs. Germs put a mean sign in the Garbers front yard. Another part I really disliked was when Winnie slaps Herbie in the face. See if their problems are solved. I hope you will enjoy this book!!!!!

The story was well-written. It does describe some of the problems that blacks go through. A couple of the characters were very touchy. I didn't like Mrs. Land on. I was glad when she said that she would move out of the neighborhood.

A Kid's Review on May 1, 2002
Format: Paperback
Iggie's House is about a girl named Winnie Barringer and
her best friend Iggie who has moved away. When Winnie finds out that the new family next door is black, Winnie gets really exicted, but not everybody is happy. Mrs.Landon (or Germs Inc.) is putting out a petition to send the Garbers away just because they're black. So when the going gets tough, Winnie tries to do something about it.
What I think about this book is that it can teach you about how hard minorities have it sometimes. It's a wonderful book and teaches you not to judge a person by how they look. I recommend that if you want to read this book you should not be predjudiced and if you are it would teach you a lesson. I loved it and it's a great book to read again and again.

Finding books that my daughter likes to read is a chore. Judy Blume usually delivers though, and this time was no different.
My daughter was glued to this book until she was finished with it. Another winner from Blume.

1. Iggie's House is a children's book by Judy Blume, published in 1970.

2. The main premise is that Winnie's best friend Iggie's family moves away and a new family named the Garbers moves into their old house. Winnie befriends the children who are named Glen, Herbie, and Tina but not everybody is as friendly to them. Why? Because it's the 70's and the Garbers are black and it is a predominantly white neighborhood. Throughout the book Winnie learns about prejudice, keeping an open mind, and having cultural sensitivity.

3. I like how full on angry Winnie gets with Clarice and Mrs. Landon. It's funny how even though Winnie is only eleven years old she can see right through Mrs. Landon and gets so mad at her for being prejudiced.

4. One of my favorite chapters was when Winnie went to the pool with her aunt. She had a really thought provoking conversation with her gym teacher (who works as a swimming instructor) about race and I think her petition that she gave to Mrs. Landon really helped prove her (Winnie's) point.

5. I bought this book used because I love Judy Blume and I had never had the chance to read this one when I was a kid. Like all of her books, it's thought provoking and the characters are realistic.
