Meet the Author

Virginia Lee Burton (1909-1968) was the talented author and illustrator of some of the most enduring books ever written for children. The winner of the 1942 Caldecott Medal for THE LITTLE HOUSE, Burton's books include heroes and happy endings, lively illustrations, and a dash of nostalgia. She lived with her two sons, Aristides and Michael, and her husband George Demetrios, the sculptor, in a section of Gloucester, Massachusetts, called Folly Cove. Here she taught a class in design and from it emerged the Folly Cove designers, a group of internationally known professional artisans. She is the author of many classic children's picture books, including MIKE MULLIGAN AND HIS STEAM SHOVEL and KATY AND THE BIG SNOW.

We borrowed this book from the library and my 2 1/2 year old has me read it every night now! He absolutely loves the story of Choo-Choo, the runaway engine. For being a 70+ year old story, I think it says a lot about Burton's storytelling abilities. I highly recommended this book to anyone that has a child that loves trains as much as mine does! :)

This eBook is the worst eBook I have purchased to date. If I could give this eBook version of the book no stars of .001 of a star I would. It is SO not worth the money you have to spend on purchasing this eBook. The eBook looks like they just scanned in the pages from the original and retyped the text because you can't read it off the scanned image. The text does not match up with the picture(s) shown. This just just an all around horrible eBook. This could have been a great eBook if it had been done properly. The contents of the book itself are great and my son loves the story, it's just painful to read from the eBook version. I'll probably be purchasing a hard copy. DO NOT waste your money on this eBook. I hate the fact Barnes and Noble does not have some kind of return policy on eBooks. I've downloaded quite a few horrible eBooks and really wish I could have returned them two seconds after looking at them.
