The Maui News - - TODAY’S PEOPLE -

NEW YORK — Best-sell­ing chil­dren’s au­thor Andrea Beaty has new ad­ven­tures in store for Rosie Re­vere.

Abrams Chil­dren’s Books told The As­so­ci­ated Press on Wed­nes­day that Beaty is work­ing on chap­ter books fea­tur­ing Rosie Re­vere, Beaty’s beloved de­scen­dent of the leg­endary Rosie the Riveter; Iggy Peck; and other char­ac­ters from her pre­vi­ous re­leases. Beaty is work­ing with il­lus­tra­tor David Roberts, with whom she col­lab­o­rated on “Rosie Re­vere, Engi­neer,” “Iggy Peck, Ar­chi­tect” and other pic­ture sto­ries.

Her next book, “Rosie Re­vere and the Rau­cous Rivet­ers,” is sched­uled for Oc­to­ber. Beaty also plans chap­ter books cen­ter­ing on Iggy Peck and Ada Twist. Her books old and new will be part of a series called “Ques­tion­eers.”

“Kids build such strong emo­tional con­nec­tions with th­ese char­ac­ters,” Beaty said in a state­ment. “It seemed a nat­u­ral next step to grow with kids as they dive into that great ad­ven­ture of in­de­pen­dent read­ing. I re­mem­ber the ex­cite­ment I felt read­ing nov­els for the first time. I’m hav­ing such fun ex­pand­ing the world of the Ques­tion­eers to bring in those en­thu­si­as­tic kids.”
