Iggy Peck, Architect
Andrea Beaty - I was raised in southern Illinois in a town so small I knew everybody and their pets. And they all knew me. I was one of six kids and we spent our summer days traipsing through the fields and forests hunting for adventure. We often found it. And sometimes it found us. Always, it was fun and often, we laughed so hard we blew Orange Crush or Grape Nehi Soda out our noses. I still avoid Grape Nehi ... just in case. Now, I live in Chicago with my family. I visit lots of schools each year to share my love of reading and my writing journey with kids and educators.
