MAYBELLE THE CABLE CAR

KIRKUS REVIEW

People who voted "yes" in the San Francisco cable car question will love every page of this book and so will their children. With an affection for that city and cartoon ability that lends her pictures and her verse a definite cross country appeal Miss Burton sings of Maybelle and her mechanism- how the brakes, cables and front wheels work- of Maybelle through the years from the turn of the century, of her impending rivalry with Big Bill the bus, of the nearly disastrous decision of the economy minded City Fathers. You'll cheer too when the Citizen's Committee wins out.
