Rosie Revere and the Raucous Riveters: The Questioneers Book #1
Rosie Revere is no stranger to flops and fails, kerfuffles and catastrophes. After all, she's an engineer, and engineering is all about perseverance! But sometimes, Rosie has a really important project to tackle - one that feels much bigger than herself. When Rosie's beloved Aunt Rose and her pals the Raucous Riveters - a gaggle of fun-loving gals who built airplanes during World War II - need her help, it's up to Rosie to save the day. Will Rosie be able to invent a contraption to help one of the Riveters paint in the annual mural competition? After one flop . . . then another . . . and another . . . Rosie starts to lose hope. But thanks to some help from her classmates Iggy Peck and Ada Twist, Rosie creates the Paintapolooza! and, along with the Riveters, rediscovers the meaning of Home. "One to Watch: Inspired by the bestselling picture books, meet The Questioneers in a new young fiction series which celebrates the inquisitive soul of Rosie Revere, Ada Twist and Iggy Peck", The Bookseller "Rosie's story challenges stereotypes about the careers that might be suitable for women and girls, and has important messages about cross-generational relationships and the value of failure in terms of learning and reformulating plans.", Booktrust "David Roberts' wonderful illustrations and diagrams bring the story alive and give readers plenty to look at and think about. A brilliant and inspiring way to dismiss stereotyping with a clever, strong and feisty female lead who, along with her friends, sets a great example to all girls." , Parents in Touch "If your child is a Rosie Revere fan they'll love the new chapter-book story about the persistent engineer, a great next step for the original picture-book fans.", TheSchoolRun "It's a beautifully written and heartfelt homage not just to those amazing women who made such an important contribution to the war effort, but to mighty little girls who dig their heels in and persevere in the face of adversity. We loved the message that sometimes you need a mess of help from your friends to succeed too.
