Iggie's house just wasn't the same. Iggie was gone, moved to Tokyo. And there was Winnie, cracking her gum on Grove Street, where she'd always lived, with no more best friend and two weeks left of summer. Then the Garber family moved into Iggie's house—two boys, Glenn and Herbie, and Tina, their little sister. The Garbers were black and Grove Street was white and always had been. Winnie, a welcoming committee of one, set out to make a good impression and be a good neighbor. That's why the trouble started. Glenn and Herbie and Tina didn't want a "good neighbor." They wanted a friend.



Winnie's best friend, Iggie, has just moved away - and Winnie's bored out of her mind without her. So she's determined to be friends with the new family, the Garbers, who've moved into Winnie's old house - especially Glenn, who's kind of cute. But certain people don't want the Garbers to be there, and have started a petition to get rid of them. You see Glenn and his family are black, and Grove Street is stuck in the past. And the toughest thing of all is that Winnie's terrified her parents might sign the petition - and there's nothing she can do to stop them.

Iggie's House is a moving novel that tackles neighbourhood prejudice, from celebrated children's author, Judy Blume.



In class we have discussed the story so far and the various ways to protest about something, such as collecting names on a petition like Mrs Landon did. Pupils were given the task with the help of a dictionary to answer a number of questions about protests and the story so far.
