By Andrea Beaty and David Roberts The story of Rosie, who dreamed of becoming a great engineer. Where some people see rubbish, Rosie Revere sees inspiration. Alone in her room at night, shy Rosie constructs great inventions from odds and ends: hot-dog dispensers, helium trousers, python-repelling cheese hats, and more. It takes a visit from her great-great-aunt Rose, for Rosie to realise that her inventions are something to celebrate, not hide away.
