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.<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.<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’s creativity at every turn.&quot;</div><div>—<i>Publishers Weekly</i><br><br>&quot;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.
