Rosie Revere, Engineer - Andrea Beaty


From the creators of Iggy Peck, Architect comes Rosie Revere, a super picture book about following your passion and not giving up. At night, Rosie is 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 builds a contraption to make her dream come true. Her invention complete, Rosie attempts a test flight, but the machine crashes to the ground. Discouraged, Rosie deems the invention a failure, but Aunt Rose insists that on the contrary, it was a raging success. You can only truly fail, she explains, if you quit. 

The combination of Andrea Beaty’s witty rhyming text and David Roberts’ stylish illustrations makes this a charming book to read again and again.
