"This is the story of Rosie Revere, who dreamed of becoming a great engineer". A gender-role-subversive picture book about an inventive girl and an inspirational aunt who shows her that failure isn't to be feared. Inspired by the fictional World War II character, Rosie the Riveter, a symbol of women's work during the war. Little Rebels Judge, Elizabeth Laird, said: 'This wittily illustrated book is a great feminist stereotype-buster. Rose, who has a passion for making gizmos and gadgets, creates wildly ambitious machines'. Age 4-7, Hardback 30pp
