Rosie may seem quiet during the day, but at night she's a brilliant inventor of gizmos and gadgets who dreams of becoming a great engineer. When her great-great-aunt Rose (Rosie the Riveter) comes for a visit and mentions her one unfinished goal to fly Rosie sets to work building a contraption to make her aunt's dream come true. But when her contraption doesn t fly but rather hovers for a moment and then crashes, Rosie deems the invention a failure. On the contrary, Aunt Rose insists that Rosie's contraption was a raging success: you can only truly fail, she explains, if you quit.
From the powerhouse author-illustrator team of "Iggy Peck, Architect "comes "Rosie Revere, Engineer," another charming, witty picture book about believing in yourself and pursuing your passion.
Praise for "Rosie Revere, Engineer""Comically detailed mixed-media illustrations that keep the mood light and emphasize Rosie's creativity at every turn." "Publishers Weekly"
"The detritus of Rosie's collections is fascinating, from broken dolls and stuffed animals to nails, tools, pencils, old lamps and possibly an erector set. And cheddar-cheese spray."
"Kirkus Reviews"
"This celebration of creativity and perseverance is told through rhyming text, which gives momentum and steady pacing to a story, consistent with the celebration of its heroine, Rosie. She's an imaginative thinker who hides her light under a bushel (well, really, the bed) after being laughed at for one of her inventions."
