Everyone’s favourite scientist, Izzy Gizmo, is back for more machine mayhem.
Izzy and Fixer can’t wait to attend the Invention Convention, their fellow contestants are intent on wasting energy to make shiny new things but Izzy and Fixer want to build a brilliant recycling machine fuelled by nature. Is their invention enough to win them the much coveted Genius Guild badge?
Simon and Schuster Children’s UK are launching an Izzy Gizmo competition to see who can create the greatest invention. Libraries can request packs and send their Create an Invention entries back to Izzy Gizmo Competition, Simon & Schuster, 222 Grays Inn Road, London, WC1X 8HB and you could win £100 of free books for your library and a signed and personalised copy of Izzy Gizmo and the Invention Convention for the winning entrant.
Simply request an activity pack and you will be sent:
- 30 x Create an Invention activity sheets
- 1 x copy of the first book, Izzy Gizmo
- 1 x Izzy Gizmo poster
- 1 x sheet of Izzy Gizmo stickers
100 packs available, this is strictly one pack per public library. If you are ordering more than one pack (to disperse to other libraries in your region) you need to also email Kimberley.Sheehan@readingagency.org.uk to notify her of the individual library names that the packs will be used at. Alternatively, you can do individual orders for each library in the shop.
You can order the packs until 6 September but they may sell out before this date.
Please note, if you order a pack you are agreeing to use the materials within your library and to share photos of the group using them on social media using #IzzyGizmo and tagging @simonkids_UK and @readingagency. You will also send feedback of how you used the provided materials by 25 November. Please do not order the pack if you cannot commit to this. If you do not provide feedback then this may affect your orders in the future.
The publisher will be dispatching your resources. They will receive a dispatch list with your contact name and work address (which you give) for delivery. They will only deliver the pack requested and the dispatch list will then be deleted after the packs have been sent.
