Everyone loves "The Little Engine That Could, " that classic tale of the determined little engine that, despite its size, triumphantly pulls a train full of toys to the waiting children on the other side of a mountain.
Now the great Loren Long ("Otis; Of Thee I Sing") has brilliantly re-illustrated this classic story, bringing it exuberantly to life for today's child. Get on board for the publishing event of the year.
"Long pays respectful homage to George and Doris Hauman's compositions in his visual interpretation of the classic tale of determination and perseverance…. Yet the artist adds a lushness to the spreads and injects even more personality into the characters…Both faithful fans and newcomers will enjoy this triumphant ride and eagerly climb aboard for repeat excursions." -Publishers Weekly, starred review
"Long has enriched this new edition with bountiful illustrations that take their palette and inspiration from the original, but are greatly enhanced by imagination and inventiveness….[T]his will travel proudly next to the one that first thought it could." -Kirkus Reviews, starred review
