Book Review: Izzy Gizmo by Pip Jones and Sara Ogilvie

If you’re looking for a new book with a determined, strong female role model then this is for you. I love this book personally, Izzy is living my childhood dream and doing loads of things I’d have liked to do. She is an inventor and has adventures based on her inventions.

There is a strong message behind the story about resilience and trying again which is really appealing at the moment in our household as I try to encourage my five year old to not give up at the first sign of something going wrong.

Izzy Gizmo has been created by Pip Jones who is responsible for Fifi’s favourite series Squishy McFluff and illustrated by Sara Ogilvie who is one of Booktrust’s Best New illustrators and has brought a brilliant character to life here. This is a colourful, well presented and fun picture book and it comes as no surprise that its shortlisted for the 2017 Sainsbury’s Children’s Book Awards.
