My name is Angela, and I'd like to share a fantastic book with you today called Rosie Revere Engineer. It's the story of a girl who dreams of becoming a world class engineer. She loves using the bits and bobs people throw away to create wonderful inventions. But as you'll discover things don't always go to plan. On the right of the cover we meet smiling, Rosie Revere with a pencil behind her ear and a red spotted headscarf tied in her head. She's holding onto a long piece of string attached to her uncle, who's floating upside down in the air. He's wearing very large voluminous trousers. On the right is our first feely picture, which includes the main characters in this book. Little Rosie Revere and a great great Aunt Rose.
