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.
Margaret Wise Brown is one of the most popular children’s authors of all time; her classic Goodnight Moon (HarperFestival), illustrated by Clement Hurd, has sold more than 24 million copies, and her books—including Big Red Barn (Harper Festival), The Runaway Bunny (HarperCollins), and The Golden Egg Book (Simon &amp;amp; Schuster)—have been in print for over 50 years. Several generations have grown up with her timeless stories and her influence has been felt around the world. (Bio via Sterling Fall 2018 Catalog.)
