MIKE MULLIGAN AND HIS STEAM SHOVEL by Virginia Lee Burton

MIKE MULLIGAN AND HIS STEAM SHOVEL

KIRKUS REVIEW

This is a sure favorite with the small child whose interest is concentrated on mechanical objects (and there are many such). Mike's shovel, almost human in his eyes, is outdated, so he takes her to a small town, and contracts to dig a cellar in a day. He does it, but shuts himself and his shovel, into the cellar. How this is solved to the delight of everyone makes an amusing wind-up. Good pictures
