A rhyming delight, we follow Izzy Gizmo through her imaginative inventions, some that work and some that don’t! She gives up when one fizzles, until her Grandpa encourages her to try again. Izzy thinks about it…until a crow falls and breaks his wing and she takes him to the vet. The vet suggests she help the crow adjust to living on the ground. She invents all sorts of contraptions to keep the crow happy, but what the crow really wanted, was to fly. Again, after a series of mishaps and almost giving up, she comes up with a way for the crow to fly. Before you know it a long line of things needing mending appear and Izzy is happy.
Bright, splashy colors of gidgets and gadgets will fascinate young minds.
