For all the little makers and inventors comes a STEAM-infused tale of determination, ingenuity, and friendship starring a feisty, diverse female engineer.

"This story of a girl engineer is sorely needed and has potential to develop and nourish readers' interest in STEAM subjects." Kirkus Reviews

Izzy Gizmo's inventions are marvelous, magnificent . . . and often malfunction. Despite the fact that she loves to invent, it never seems to work out in her favor. 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?

From author Pip Jones, this inspiring story of creativity and perseverance in the face of failure showcases a sweet friendship and is illustrated with bright, zany art from the acclaimed Sara Ogilvie.
