Rosie is a creative thinker who, after being laughed at, hides her inventions. “Alone in her attic, the moon high above, dear Rosie made gadgets and gizmos she loved. And when she grew sleepy, she hid her machines far under her bed, where they’d never be seen.”
Her great-aunt, an engineer, gives her the encouragement she needs and shows her that failure is part of the creative process. “The only true failure can come if you quit.”
