<DIV><B><I>New York Times </I>Bestseller</B><BR /><BR /> Rosie may seem quiet during the day, but at night she&rsquo;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&mdash;to fly&mdash;Rosie sets to work building a contraption to make her aunt&rsquo;s dream come true. But when her contraption doesn&rsquo;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&rsquo;s contraption was a raging success: you can only truly fail, she explains, if you quit.<BR /><BR /> From the powerhouse author-illustrator team of <I>Iggy Peck, Architect </I>comes <I>Rosie Revere, Engineer</I>, another charming, witty picture book about believing in yourself and pursuing your passion. <I>Ada Twist, Scientist</I>, the companion picture book featuring the next kid from Iggy Peck&#39;s class, is available in September 2016.<!--?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /--><BR /><BR /><B><U>Praise for <I>Rosie Revere, Engineer</I></U></B></DIV><DIV>&quot;Comically detailed mixed-media illustrations that keep the mood light and emphasize Rosie&rsquo;s creativity at every turn.&quot;</DIV><DIV>&mdash;<I>Publishers Weekly</I><BR /><BR /> &quot;The detritus of Rosie&rsquo;s collections is fascinating, from broken dolls and stuffed animals to nails, tools, pencils, old lamps and possibly an erector set.
