Rosie Revere Engineer

The summer is nearly over but it's been a very busy time at Artist Partners with three new highly anticipated Children’s Picture Books being published this month!

Its all very exciting news!! The first of those books is the most recent one illustrated by David Roberts and I can say it's already creating a real buzz in Children’s Publishing circles!

Published by Abrams Books "Rosie Revere Engineer" is the follow up to the hugely successful Iggy Peck picture book, also written by talented author Andrea Beaty and beautifully illustrated by the ever popular David Roberts.
Reviewers in the US and Europe are naming it as  the book to watch, with a rhyming tale about a young girl living her dreams inventing gizmos and gadgets as a budding engineer!

Just Published: Primrose by Alex T Smith

Alex T Smith's exciting new picture book 'Primrose', is published by Scholastic this month. Primrose is a princess who just wants to have fun but the King tells her off for climbing trees and the Queen shrieks when she catches her jumping on the bed with Percy the pug. She isn't allowed to dig in the garden or cook cakes in the kitchen, her life is boring, boring, boring! This is until Grandmama comes for a visit and reminds everyone in the royal household how important it is to have some belly-laughs. This book is very pink, feisty and a lot of fun - it's available in hardback, paperback and the ebook is narrated by Lucy Porter through Me Books. Alex T Smith is represented by Arena
