Izzy Gizmo and the Invention Convention
Beloved inventor Izzy Gizmo returns in an engaging tale of competition, resourcefulness, and sheer determination—snap this one up for aspiring engineers and maker space learning.
Izzy Gizmo has been invited to compete at an invention convention for a spot in the Genius Guild! Great inventors produce gadgets that can be put to good use, so Izzy Gizmo decides to build a recycling machine that mends broken tools.
But another contestant, Abi von Lavish, has been hogging all the best materials. How is Izzy supposed to finish her invention if she can’t even find the parts to put it together? With the help her crow sidekick, Fixer, Izzy will have to adjust her plans and find another way to win.
In this companion to Izzy Gizmo, Author Pip Jones once again pairs jaunty rhyme with illustrator Sara Ogilvie’s energetic illustrations to produce a wonderfully exuberant STEAM-filled story starring a very inspiring and determined heroine.
Pip Jones spent her childhood gobbling up books and dreaming about being an author. At nineteen, she began a career in journalism, and in 2014, she published her first book. Pip is most often found writing, staring at the contents of the fridge, or herding her two children. She lives in England.
Sara Ogilvie studied illustration and printmaking at Edinburgh College of Art. In addition to illustrating children's books, Sara exhibits across the UK and abroad and creates images for editorial, design, and advertising. She lives in England.
“This ode to imagination, perseverance, and fun just may inspire young readers to do some tinkering of their own.” —Booklist
