This book has been around for longer than most of us have been alive, so it must be a keeper. Mike Mulligan and his steam shovel, Mary Anne, get the job of digging the cellar for Popperville’s new town hall, but if they can’t get if done in a day then they won’t get paid. It’s a race against the clock and just about everyone thinks they can’t get it done. It’s a great story about underdogs and perseverance.
