Rosie Revere, Engineer
A New York Times Bestseller
This is the story of Rosie Revere, who dreamed of becoming a great engineer.
Where some people see rubbish, Rosie Revere sees inspiration. Alone in her room at night, shy Rosie constructs great inventions from odds and ends. Hot dog dispensers, helium pants, python-repelling cheese hats: Rosie’s gizmos would astound—if she ever let anyone see them. Afraid of failure, she hides them away under her bed. Until a fateful visit from her great-great-aunt Rose, who show her that a first flop isn’t something to fear—it’s something to celebrate.
Andrea Beaty and David Roberts, the author-illustrator team behind the classic picture book Iggy Peck, Architect, have whipped up another stunning, witty invention that honors pursuing one’s passion—with persistence.
