Ig is a children's book where healthy eating, protecting the planet and the importance of community are at the heart of the story.
"The new book on the block." - The Book Sniffer

"Ecstatically the best book I've ever read!" - Yan, 6
Ig is a big chap. In fact, he's too big to live in the woods that he has to live on top of them instead. But he's not up there by himself. Living on top of him, in a town on his tummy, are his pals the Igglees.
When Ig wakes up feeling a bit under the weather one morning the Igglees need to pull together to work out how they're going to make him better, but can they do it before he sneezes the town into a big mess..?
Ig comes free with a recipe card so children can make the same healthy fruit smoothie (plus two more) that the characters make in the story!
A note from the creators:
We're Jake & Matt, two friends who believe that books can be good for children's bodies as well as their brains.
Both of us love to tell stories. Jake prefers to write them down and Matt likes to draw them, so when we first started working in advertising together, a side project of some kind was inevitably on the cards.
That project very quickly became Ig, a children's book where healthy eating is at the heart of the story.
Struggling to find the time to give the Ig illustrations the love they deserved, Matt upped and left his flat and job in London to go and live with his Nan Audrey on the Norfolk coast for four months.
When it was all finished, we took to Kickstarter to get it made.
Thanks to the support of an incredible community, we were fortunate enough to raise well over our target to get the first run printed. Kickstarter even named us one of their 'Projects We Love'.
Then, with the books all ready to go, we launched in Crate Brewery in London.
Now, a bit further down the line, Ig is making his way to bookshops, bookshelves and bedtimes all over the world (and we couldn't be more thankful).
We hope you enjoy the story.
