about

Un clasico moderno que ningun nino debe perderse. Desde que fue publicado en 1939, Mike Mulligan y su maquina maravillosa ha deleitado a generaciones de ninos. Mike y su confiable excavadora de vapor, Mary Anne, excavan profundos canales para que viajen los barcos, cortan montanas para que pasen los trenes y vacian sotanos para los rascacielos citadinos -el simbolo mismo de la America industrial-. Pero con el progreso llegan nuevas maquinas y pronto el duo inseparable se queda sin trabajo. Mike cree que Mary Anne puede excavar en un dia lo mismo que pueden excavar cien hombres en una semana y ambos tienen una ultima oportunidad para probarlo y salvar a Mary Anne del desguace. Lo que sigue en el pequeno pueblo de Popperville es un testimonio a su amistad y al viejo trabajo duro y la ingenuidad.
A modern classic now available in Spanish. Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel is the story of a steam-shovel operator and his steam shovel - the beguiling Mary Anne - which he would not desert, even though competition from gas and diesel-motored shovels was ruining him. The solution to Mike's problem is classic in its simplicity. Under pressure to show Mary Anne at her best, Mike digs the foundation for the town hall of Popperville and in his haste forgets to leave a way for Mary Anne to get out! The ingenious townspeople suggest that Mary Anne be remodeled into a furnace and Mike be retained to keep her heart and boiler warm. This is a classic story of the old being replaced by the new and the nostalgia often felt for archaic things. Mary Anne and Mike are a team to be admired, and now their tale can be enjoyed and shared by Spanish- and English-speaking children alike.

Editorial Reviews

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 "
