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. Ada Twist, Scientist, the companion picture book featuring the next kid from Iggy Peck's class, is available in September 2016.

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."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Awesome book for little girls!
Date published: 2016-11-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from So great! I borrowed this book from the library and my daughter loved it so much that we went out and bought a copy from Chapters for our own home library! This is such a clever and fun story. I fully support getting young girls interested in STEM and this book certainly helps achieve that goal. Rosie is a cute character who uses her brain - and spray cheese - to invent. What a role model for my little girls! #plumreview

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good story, great visuals I think it is very important to get young girls interested in STEM topics and this book has really inspired my 4 year old - it helps that Rosie uses spray cheese to power her inventions. This is a good book for children and parents alike. #plumreview

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great book, great message I love Rosie as a role-model for my daughters -- she loves to invent things to help out her family. But when an invention fails, her aunt is there to encourage her to keep trying -- that failure is a great first step!
