Izzy Gizmo's inventions are marvelous, magnificent... and often malfunction. But when she finds a crow with a broken wing, she has to help! Izzy tries again and again to build a new pair of wings, but nothing is working. Can Izzy overcome her failures? Or is her friend destined to live as a crow who can't fly?
A feisty tale of determination, ingenuity, and friendship, Pip Jones’ U.S. debut, illustrated with bright, zany art of from the acclaimed Sara Ogilvie, is sure to capture the imaginations of aspiring young inventors.
"At many points along the way, curly-haired, brown-skinned Izzy wants to quit — and says so — but continues to persevere and in the end succeeds.... themes of creativity and tenacity, together with the portrayal of a girl who’s allowed to show anger and frustration, make this a worthwhile read. Fun, with depth." — Kirkus Reviews
