Rosie Revere, Engineer by Andrea Beaty, illustrated by David Roberts

rosierevere

‘This is the story of Rosie Revere, who dreamed of becoming a great engineer…’

The creators of Iggy Peck, Architect have a new book. It’s about Rosie Revere, an aspiring engineer who is a bit scared to show her ambitious creations to the world. It’s only when her old aunt Rose comes to stay that Rosie sees that maybe failure is in fact the first step to success. The illustrations burst with colour, Rosie’s creations are intricate and wonderful (and often include cheese among their working parts) and the story has a wonderful message for children and adults who may need reminding about pursuing their passion. The book also has fun facts on the pioneering women in the flight industry (did you know that Elizabeth Thible was the first women to fly in a hot air balloon in 1784?) and Rosie is a great little role model for any little girl into engineering, creating and experimenting. $19.95 in Hardback
