Rosie 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.

Industry Reviews
"One to Watch: Inspired by the bestselling picture books, meet The Questioneers in a new young fiction series which celebrates the inquisitive soul of Rosie Revere, Ada Twist and Iggy Peck" -- The Bookseller
"Rosie's story challenges stereotypes about the careers that might be suitable for women and girls, and has important messages about cross-generational relationships and the value of failure in terms of learning and reformulating plans." -- Booktrust
"David Roberts' wonderful illustrations and diagrams bring the story alive and give readers plenty to look at and think about. A brilliant and inspiring way to dismiss stereotyping with a clever, strong and feisty female lead who, along with her friends, sets a great example to all girls." -- Parents in Touch
"If your child is a Rosie Revere fan they'll love the new chapter-book story about the persistent engineer, a great next step for the original picture-book fans." -- TheSchoolRun
"It's a beautifully written and heartfelt homage not just to those amazing women who made such an important contribution to the war effort, but to mighty little girls who dig their heels in and persevere in the face of adversity. We loved the message that sometimes you need a mess of help from your friends to succeed too. " -- Read it Daddy
"Books for right-on kids!: Following on from the bestselling picture books, Rosie Revere and the Raucous Riveters is the first chapter book in The Questioneers series." -- The Guardian
"The story is compatible with STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) teaching and as well as being full of scientific references. The story features some good underlying messages about teamwork, asking for help, failure and friendship and Roberts' characteristic illustrations throughout. It's a very enjoyable and empowering story, with several points for PSHE or STEM " -- The School Librarian
