Good gracious, Ignacious!

Here's a gift idea for the tiny archi-geek in your life, Iggy Peck, Architect. It's a great story about passion and perseverance with a good, albeit sometimes tongue twistery, rhyme scheme.
But the best part by far is David Roberts illustrations, especially the ones on graph paper (I love graph paper).
Plus, saying the line, "Good gracious, Ignacious!" is almost fun enough to make you want to run out and buy a cat just so you can name him Iggy. (maybe that's just me.)
