Publisher Description

From the powerhouse author/illustrator team of Iggy Peck, Architect comes Rosie Revere, Engineer, another charming, witty picture book about pursuing your passion. 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. Her invention complete, Rosie attempts a test flight--but after a moment, 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. Reassured, Rosie returns to her engineering and inspires her classmates to join in the fun.

Review

"Rosie is a brilliant inventor of amazing gadgets, from helium pants and hot dog dispensers to python-repelling cheese hats." -- Best science fiction books for children, The School Run "The reversal of gender expectation - Girls! You can do anything, you don't have to ask! - is well-travelled terrain, but what marks these books out is the ludic detail of the drawings and the witty, untendentious spirit of adventure in the writing." -- The Guardian
