Title: Rosie Revere, Engineer
Rosie Revere dreams about being an engineer, and pursues all sorts of inventions. But after she fails with a cheese hat that keeps the pythons away, she looses her nerve. When her aunty comes to visit and shares her desire to fly, Rosie’s creative juices get flowing again and she can’t help but try to make something to help her aunt. When this invention also fails, she decides to stop, until her aunt reminds her that failures are only the beginning of great inventions!
First off the illustrations are fabulous. The graph paper on the end pages, the knick knacks galore and the sheer number of treasures used in each creation are brilliant. Top these off with stylized drawings of the adults and kids in the book and you have a visual stunner.
Fun for all kids. Can’t imagine a kid not liking this one.
I think the hot dog dispenser and helium pants are probably my favorite Rosie inventions.
