The pair behind the award-winning Iggy Peck, Architect put their heads together again for this charming book that’s not-so-subtly inspired by Rosie the Riveter. In rhyming text, we get lessons in ingenuity, ambition and resolve through Rosie, who forges wacky inventions from odds and ends. Think broken tennis rackets, canned cheese and spare doll heads. When her great-great-aunt Rose mentions a bucket list, Rosie (OK, so it’s a family name) attempts to build her a flying machine. It’s no surprise when her “heli-o-cheese-copter” fails to stay airborne on its first flight, but Rosie explains that the only real failure is letting doubt keep you grounded.
