Product Description:

Mike Mulligan and his steam shovel Mary Anne are a remarkable team. Mike is so faithful to his steam shovel that even the new and improved gasoline, electric, and diesel shovels do not interest him. Soon, Mike and Mary Anne find themselves without work. In an attempt to prove that Mary Anne is still able to work with the best of them, Mike makes a proposal to the town of Popperville. He and Mary Anne will dig the cellar for the new town hall in one day or it's free of charge. When a glitch prevents the task from being accomplished, it looks as though Mike and Mary Anne will not get paid. Then, a clever suggestion by a little boy creates a home for Mike and Mary Anne in Popperville forever. ~ Enh

Publisher Description:

A modern classic that no child should miss. Since it was first published in 1939, Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel has delighted generations of children. Mike and his trusty steam shovel, Mary Anne, dig deep canals for boats to travel through, cut mountain passes for trains, and hollow out cellars for city skyscrapers -- the very symbol of industrial America. But with progress come new machines, and soon the inseparable duo are out of work. Mike believes that Mary Anne can dig as much in a day as one hundred men can dig in a week, and the two have one last chance to prove it and save Mary Anne from the scrap heap. What happens next in the small town of Popperville is a testament to their friendship, and to old-fashioned hard work and ingenuity.
