Izzy Gizmo

Illustrated by: Sara Ogilvie
For Ages: 1 - 99
Meet Izzy Gizmo - a fabulously feisty new character from Pip Jones (Squishy McFluff; Daddy's Sandwich) brought brilliantly to life with exuberant and detailed illustratrions from the best-selling illustrator of Detective Dog, Sara Ogilvie. Shortlisted for the Sainsbury's Children's Book Awards 2017!

Izabelle Gizmo just loves to invent, but her inventions never seem to work the way she wants them to. And that makes her really CROSS! When she finds a crow with a broken wing she just has to help. But will she be able to put her frustrations to one side and help her new friend to fly again?

‘Jones’s loping, engaging rhymes and Ogilvie’s vivacious images evoke both inspiration and frustration’ Guardian
‘This exuberantly riotous story… blends the fun of rhyme with the touching friendship between a charismatic crow and a never-say-die young inventor’ Lancashire Evening Post
‘A lovely story of ingenuity and determination’ Parents in Touch
‘Pip Jones’ rhyming narrative is a cracker to read aloud and Sara Ogilvie’s imagination must be almost as fertile as young Izzy’s. Her intricately detailed scenes of mechanical mayhem are simply magnificent. A real riot.’ Red Reading Hub
