Book Review- Izzy Gizmo and the Invention Convention by Pip Jones

 Hi everyone! Today I have a fantastic picture book to review- Izzy Gizmo and the Invention Convention by Pip Jones, illustrated by Sara Ogilvie.


My Review-

I love books that engage a child's creativity, and I knew just from the title that I wanted to read this book. It is actually book two. Boo One, Izzy Gizmo introduces our young inventor. In this second book, Izzy is invited to participate in an Invention Convention. She runs into a problem when one of her competitors, Abi von Lavish, gets to everything first, leaving Izzy with no supplies. She despairs, but charges ahead. Then, she finds out that Abi is using up all the electricity. It's the final crack in her plan and Izzy doesn't know what to do. However, her bird companion, Fixer, has an idea. Use nature's energy! What a great idea. 

I loved all of the bold colors and creative pictures. The inventions are out of this world, so you have to give a little leeway, but the morals of the book, believing in yourself and never giving up, are well represented. This book will grab your child's imagination and it will blossom. Maybe they will start inventing things around the house. Who knows? I'm giving this PB 4 stars!
