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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"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
