About the bookRosie Revere is no stranger to flops and fails, kerfuffles and catastrophes. After all, engineering is all about perseverance! But this time, Rosie has a really important project to tackle—one that feels much bigger than herself. 

Rosie’s beloved Aunt Rose and her friends, the Raucous Riveters—a group of fun-loving gals who built airplanes during World War II—need help inventing something new. And Rosie is just the engineer for the job!

After one flop . . . then another . . . and another . . . Rosie starts to lose hope. But thanks to some help from her fellow Questioneers Iggy Peck and Ada Twist, Rosie gets the job done. And, along with the Riveters, she rediscovers the meaning of home.

Beloved by children, Rosie Revere, Engineer was published in 2013 and has spent over 125 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list. It follows a feisty second-grader who learns to overcome adversity while dreaming of becoming an engineer and was bookended by the publications of Iggy Peck, Architect in 2007, Ada Twist, Scientist in 2016, and their follow-up activity books, Rosie Revere’s Big Project Book for Bold Engineers (2017), Iggy Peck’s Big Project Book for Amazing Architects (2017), and Ada Twist’s Big Project Book for Stellar Scientists (2018). Iggy Peck and Ada Twist chapter books will be published after Rosie Revere and the Raucous Riveters, with additional titles and new characters to follow.
