The Little Engine That Could
The classic tale of persevering against the odds!"Long pays respectful homage to George and Doris Hauman's compositions in his visual interpretation of the classic tale of determination and perseverance….

The Little Engine That Could comes to life all over again in this gorgeous oversized picture book with foil on the cover and the beautiful art from the 1950s. A train of toys desperately need an engine to take them over the mountain so that they can deliver toys and food to children. But none of the big, important engines will help them. Luckily, the Little Blue Engine comes along. She is small, but she has confidence that she can do it - and she does!
