LGB Margaret Wise Brown's The Steam Roller


Formats & editions


To celebrate Golden Books’ 75th anniversary: a little-known Christmas tale by the author of Goodnight Moon is now a Little Golden Book that’ll keep readers smiling all year long!

Once there was a little girl. It was Christmas and her mother and father gave her a steam roller….

Celebrated illustrator Bob Staake brings his comic genius to Margaret Wise Brown’s hilarious story about a girl who’s given nothing for Christmas except a giant steam roller. She gamely sets out to drive it despite not knowing how, and squashes everyone in her way—including her mean old aunt, her teacher, and a policeman. Dismayed to see everyone as flat as a shadow, she informs her parents, who immediately present her with a giant steam shovel to scoop everyone up with. Soon everyone has been scooped back to normal, and a wonderful Christmas is had by all!
