What a brilliant book, especially for little girls. First, it shows that girls can be tinkerers and inventors; it's not just "for boys".

The "moral" of the story is to not give up so easily, if something doesn't go right, it's ok to be disappointed and frustrated about it but to then keep trying, just because the first (or 5th) attempt didn't work, it doesn't mean you're a failure.

For unconventional families/single parent homes etc., this is also a breath of fresh air as it only features a grandfather, not parents.

The artwork throughout the book is like the front cover, I love it. It's vibrant and full of little details for children to discover. The inventions Izzy makes are wonderfully creative and this is reflected in the illustrations beautifully.

The illustrations themselves add to the story: the written story (short sentences on each page) conveys the message of not giving up/keep trying but the illustrations go further and reflect the creative process of coming up with new ideas, doing research to improve on your ideas and so on.

The end gives me a good chuckle every time, too, it's an extra little lesson for Izzy to learn - that she can't just help herself to bits and bobs without checking with the owners first!

I bought this for a friend's little girl for her 5th birthday. She is called Izzy and her parents are engineers, so this was the perfect gift! I read the story before I sent it and have to admit I quite enjoyed it. The story is encouraging of children to not give up and to keep trying different things until you succeed. My friend's daughter enjoyed it very much and it has become a bedtime favourite.

I bought this book for my daughter's who are 4 and 2 as a change from the princess style stories that they usually pick at bedtime. We've really enjoyed reading it and they have been inspired to play inventor games with their playmobile

Izzy Gizmo is our new favourite. The way Pip Jones and Sara Ogilvie have invented the marvellously bonkers gadgets and gizmos is, well, phenomenal. We love taking in all the quirky, funny details. The crow is so full of character, too, and the illustrator has captured Izzy's creative bursts and frustrations with aplomb. And the warmth of her relationship with her grandfather is so sweet. One for us to treasure. Five star from us!

This book is just what I wanted for my daughters: In Izzy Gizmo, Pip Jones has created a strong, sassy and clever female role model who has a complicated engineering problem to solve and perseveres until she achieves it. It just happens to be a beautifully-crafted story with great illustrations too - hooray!

Brilliant book - great for inspiring girls to work hard, problem solve, fix things etc... will definitely be a firm favourite in our household. My nearly 4 year old girl loved it, and I'm sure her brother will too.
