I am so pleased to be joining with Mother Daughter Book Reviews to bring you the second book in The Adventures of Prince Iggy book series by Aldo Fynn, “Prince Iggy and the Tower of Decisions”
I just love this little guy! Absolutely fantastic series of books to engage any reluctant boy. Through Prince Iggy's magical adventures, Aldo Fynn teaches important life lessons such as bullying and perseverance in a way that children and teens can relate to. In his latest adventure, Iggy has to battle self-doubt and anxiety as well as learn a lesson or two in appreciating what he has, self-confidence and loyalty to friends - all issues that teens can relate to.
The book is wonderfully written with a huge dose of absurdity to lighten the mood, and adventurous enough to appeal to even the most reluctant reader. The cliffhanger ending is guaranteed to leave readers wanting more.
All in all, another resounding success for Fynn. We want more Iggy!

Summary: Kirkus Reviews called the second book in the Adventures of Price Iggy, “a satisfying sequel to a memorable first book featuring an unprepossessing hero who might just become a household name.” This quirky and fast paced story with 30+ illustrations is ideal for middle grade readers and adults looking for a different kind of hero. Foreword Clarion wrote “delightful, adventurous story…Fynn uses this volume to address adolescent anxiety and self-doubt.” and IndieReader concluded Prince Iggy and the Tower of Decisions “offers excitement and surprises to keep young readers engaged.”
Iggy and his friends set sail for the Rose Kingdom. But Iggy isn’t sure if he has what it takes to really be a prince. Well, he’s about to find out…
When the Lucky Rose 2 blasts off into space, Iggy meets the Rose Star and literally has an out-of-body experience. And that’s just the beginning. His adventures include confronting a hungry shark face-to-face, dancing in a live-or-die talent competition, and battling a blue dragon with very clean teeth.
And when Iggy finally makes it to the Rose Kingdom, Queen Victoria refuses to give up the throne. If Iggy wants to become ruler of the Rose Kingdom, he must enter the Tower of Decisions. Only problem is, very few people make it out alive…
