About 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.

From AudioFile:

This story of Maybelle's fight to remain relevant in a world of progress is a classic. Burton (beloved author of MIKE MULLIGAN AND HIS STEAM SHOVEL) wrote and illustrated this book in the 1950s to tell the tale of San Francisco's fight to save its cable cars from extinction. The story has an old-fashioned feel, which Peter Kovner's hearty narration does everything to enhance. Kovner enthusiastically produces all the required sounds (clangs, dings, conductor's calls), and the story's brisk pace is further fueled by Burton's rhymes and the pleasant background music that makes you want to hop on and join the ride.
