CALLAWAY CLASSICS DELUXE LARGE-SIZED LIMITED EDITION

Everyone loves The Little Engine That Could, that classic tale of the determined little engine that, despite its size, triumphantly pulls a train full of toys to the waiting children on the other side of a mountain.

Now the great Loren Long (Mr. Peabody's Apples) has brilliantly re-illustrated this classic story, bringing it exuberantly to life for today's child.

CALLAWAY CLASSICS are uniquely collectible. The large scale trim size is 14.5 x 17 inches in order to convey the full power of the art. The books are printed on the finest uncoated paper, heavyweight Mohawk Superfine, utilizing the latest digital prepress techniques and four-color offset lithography. Each copy is numbered with a limited print run. The books are hardbound, jacketed, and contained in a lavish deluxe collector's gift box. The Callaway Classics series is edited under the direction of Maria Tatar, Dean for the Humanities at Harvard University, who is one of the most authoritative and insightful writers on the history and meaning of fairy tales.
