In this Junior Library Guild Selection, a young boy tries to convince his mother to let him have an iguana for a pet. With lively, imaginative illustrations, Orloff and Catrow show their polar-opposite dreams of life with the reptile. Full color. Alex just has to convince his mom to let him have an iguana, so he puts his arguments in writing. He promises that she won't have to feed it or clean its cage or even see it if she doesn't want to. Of course Mom imagines life with a six-foot-long iguana eating them out of house and home. Alex's reassurances: It takes fifteen years for an iguana to get that big. I'll be married by then and probably living in my own house. and his mom's replies: How are you going to get a girl to marry you when you own a giant reptile? will have kids in hysterics as the negotiations go back and forth through notes. And the lively, imaginative illustrations show their polar opposite dreams of life with an iguana.

"I Wanna Iguana" is a very humorous story! Through a series of notes Alex is trying to convince his mom to let him have his friend's iguana, as his friend is moving away. His reasoning, forms of persuasion and the way he signs his notes are very cute. An enjoyable story for anyone of any age to read!

This book is good if you're looking for something persuasive, and that's where it's mentioned most in professional books. It's also funny. The entire text consists of an exchange of letters between a mother and a son wherein the son is attempting to convince his mother to let him adopt his friend's pet iguana. This is one of those books that can be appreciated for a couple of reasons. Well done. And the illustrations are funny too.

A little boy named Alex has a friend who is moving. His friend needs to give his iguana away. Alex writes letters to his mom trying to convince her that he can take care of it if she lets him have it. The mom replies everytime, telling him of hher concerns. In the end, the mom surprises Alex with the iguana. This story was adorable. The illustrations of the silly notes were great. Alex's facial expressions were so exaggerated. I was looking forward to each page. My class could write letters to put in a box about what class pet they would like to have. The majority, if reasonable, would win. I could also use this book in my pet unit with lessons on responsibility.

A little boy and his mother write each other notes back and forth discussing why the little boy should be allowed to own a pet iguana. The notes get kind of silly at times but a lot of good points about the realities of taking care of a pet are brought up as well. The illustrations of the sillier notes are sure to bring about giggles. I'm not 100% sure of how this will work as a read aloud but it's definitely on my list of potential story time books.
