Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Rosie may seem quiet during the day, but at night sheandrsquo;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 goalandmdash;to flyandmdash;Rosie sets to work building a contraption to make her auntandrsquo;s dream come true. But when her contraption doesnandrsquo;t fly but rather hovers for a moment and then crashes, Rosie deems the invention a failure. On the contrary, Aunt Rose insists that Rosieandrsquo;s contraption was a raging success: you can only truly fail, she explains, if you quit.

From the powerhouse author-illustrator team of Iggy Peck, Architect comes Rosie Revere, Engineer, another charming, witty picture book about believing in yourself and pursuing your passion.

Praise for Rosie Revere, Engineer

andquot;Comically detailed mixed-media illustrations that keep the mood light and emphasize Rosieandrsquo;s creativity at every turn.andquot;
andmdash;Publishers Weekly

andquot;The detritus of Rosieandrsquo;s collections is fascinating, from broken dolls and stuffed animals to nails, tools, pencils, old lamps and possibly an erector set. And cheddar-cheese spray.andquot;

andmdash;Kirkus Reviews

andquot;This celebration of creativity and perseverance is told through rhyming text, which gives momentum and steady pacing to a story, consistent with the celebration of its heroine, Rosie. Sheandrsquo;s an imaginative thinker who hides her light under a bushel (well, really, the bed) after being laughed at for one of her inventions.andquot;

Synopsis:

By the time she?s two years old, Violet Van Winkle can fi x nearly any appliance in the house. And by eight she?s building elaborate fl ying machines from scratch?mind-boggling contraptions such as the Tubbubbler, the Bicycopter, and the Wing-a-ma-jig. The kids at school tease her, but they have no idea what she?s capable of. Maybe she could earn their respect by winning the blue ribbon in the upcoming Air Show. Or maybe something even better will happen?something involving her bestever invention, a Boy Scout troop in peril, and even the mayor himself!

A classic underdog story full of humor and sweetness and retro pizzazz, Violet the Pilot is both endearing and adorable. It?ll fl y right into your heart.
