    "This is fun both in its text and gray crayon drawings. Mike Mulligan remains faithful to his steam shovel Mary Anne, against the threat of the new gas and diesel-engine contraptions, and digs his way to a surprising and happy ending." The New Yorker 


    "This new edition features a snazzy red foil dust jacket and some brief back matter...A perfect choice to replace well-worn copies of this beloved book."
