You loved the bestselling picture books starring Rosie Revere, Ada Twist, and Iggy Peck. Now you can follow The Questioneers' further adventures in brand-new chapter books! The first installment, Rosie Revere and the Raucous Riveters, is a spirited story about the power of teamwork and the true meaning of home.

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.

The duo behind the bestselling STEAM-based picture book series that introduced engineer Rosie Revere, architect Iggy Peck, and scientist Ada Twist turns the kids into a team, "the Questioneers," in a spirited chapter book series opener. The kids are as ambitious as ever, and Rosie's great-great-aunt Rose supplies additional pizzazz with her fellow Blue River Riveters, who built airplanes together during WWII and now spend their days laughing, singing, dancing, and helping one another--all sporting polka-dot kerchiefs. When artist June breaks both wrists in a motor-scooter mishap, Aunt Rose directs Rosie to invent something on a tight timeline so that June can participate in an art contest, despite her double casts. The young engineer leaps into action, using "springs and strings and other things" to repurpose a failed invention. Through a sequence of trials, neatly captured in Roberts's buoyant illustrations, Rosie creates the Paintapalooza. Design elements (graph paper, illustrated inventions) give the book a scientific feel, and the collaborators again balance entertainment with key life lessons in problem-solving, persistence, and resilience. Final art not seen by PW. Ages 6-9. Author's agent: Rebecca Sherman, Writers House. Illustrator's agent: Christine Isteed, Artist Partners. (Oct.)
