What’s “Rosie Revere and the Raucous Riveters” and the book series “Questioneers” about?

You may know the awesome 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 book in the series, 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.

Read or listen to the book first, and then join in the conversation with Ms. Sarah over Zoom on Wednesday, February 17 at 6:30 to talk about what you liked and didn’t like about the book, what was most interesting, and more! Plus you get to help decide what book series to read next.

If you decide you DO like Questioneers, you’ll be able to get copies of the sequels right after the book club meeting, plus we’ll make sure you get a copy of next month’s book!
