About this item

Over the years Mike Mulligan and his steam shovel, Mary Anne, have worked together digging out countless basements, canals, and tunnels. However, as Mary Anne grows older, she and Mike begin to lose work to the speedy new gas and diesel shovels. Determined to prove that Mary Anne is still the best digger around, Mike agrees that they will dig out the basement for Popperville's new town hall in one day--and if they can't finish before the day is done, the town doesn't have to pay them. Although it seems that Mary Anne and Mike do have the power to dig out the basement, Mike hasn't thought about how Mary Anne is going to get out of the huge hole they've just dug. Is this the end of Mike and Mary Anne? This classic look at creatively adapting to change is illustrated with color drawings.
When Mike Mulligan and his steam shovel, Mary Ann, lose their jobs to the gasoline, electric, and diesel motor shovels, they go to a little country town where they find that one new job leads to another.
