Izzy Gizmo and the Invention Convention

Illustrated by Sara Ogilvie

About The Book


Izzy and Fixer are back for more machine mayhem . . .

While their fellow contestants at the Invention Convention are intent on making shiny new things using old power, can Izzy and Fixer build a recycling machine fuelled by nature... AND win the coveted Genius Guild badge along the way?

A joyful celebration of the magic of make-do-and-mend from the creators of the much-loved Izzy Gizmo.


‘Jones’s loping, engaging rhymes and Ogilvie’s vivacious images evoke both inspiration and frustration’ The Guardian
