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;

Review:

"Beaty and Roberts return to the themes (and second-grade classroom) of 2007's Iggy Peck, Architect to revel in the talents and insecurities of one of his classmates. Rosie Revere loves nothing more than to create Rube Goldberg — worthy contraptions during the wee hours of the morning. But an earlier incident has sapped Rosie's self-confidence: after she created a quirky snake-deterring hat for a beloved zookeeper uncle, his response was devastating: 'He laughed till he wheezed and his eyes filled with tears,/ all to the horror of Rosie Revere.' It takes a visit from another enterprising family member to restore Rosie's faith in herself. The book's message — that the unthinking words and actions of adults can have a chilling effect on children — is an important one, though Beaty hammers it a bit hard in her singsong rhymes. Luckily, Roberts compensates with comically detailed mixed-media illustrations that keep the mood light and emphasize Rosie's creativity at every turn. To wit, in Rosie's version of using every part of the buffalo, she doesn't let a single baby doll appendage go to waste. Ages 5 — up. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC.

Synopsis:

In a three-story house with a shop down below,

lived the worlds finest hat maker, Madame Chapeau.

Like the Lady herself, all her hats were refined.

Brilliantly singular. One of a kind.

So begins the tale of a lonely hat maker who matches customers to the perfect hat but lacks her own perfect match in life. Once a year, on her birthday, Madame Chapeau ventures out in her favorite bonnet to dinner. This time, a crow snatches her hat and flies away. Mon dieu! As she chases the crow through the streets of Paris, a baker, a policeman, a cowboy, and others offer her their own hats to wear. None of them are quite right, though, until one special little girl offers her a hat andquot;knitted with love and [her] best birthday wish.andquot;

From the bestselling team behind Iggy Peck, Architect and Rosie Revere, Engineer comes this delightful and very stylish story about love, community, and friendship, with some fancy hats thrown in for good measure.

Praise for Happy Birthday, Madame Chapeau

andquot;Beaty carries the bounces and lilts to the very last page. Robertsand#39; colorful, exaggerated hats (many of which are modeled on real designs) whimsically adorn the multicultural Parisian public.andquot;
