What's The Diggers About

Publisher Summary

What young child doesn’t like to dig? Now he or she can dig with a cast of backyard characters: a mole, a worm, a mouse, a rabbit, and a dog. But what other diggers delight the small child? Why, the mighty steam shovel that digs under rivers and through mountains.First published in 1960, The Diggers combines all the classic elements of Margaret Wise Brown’s enduring talent: simple, rich language, charming characters, and realism and fantasy expertly interwoven. Dan Kirk’s art has a retro feel that beautifully compliments this timeless story.
