I don’t remember with whom, but I was describing Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel to someone recently.


Lovely! Although we always preferred “The Little House”. There is also one about a fog horn, but I can’t remember the title.

Oh wait, here it is…The Little Red Lighthouse…but it’s not by Virginia Lee Burton, it’s by Hildegarde Swift.

Here’s the book on Amazon: The Little Red Lighthouse and the Great Gray Bridge. I’m not sure I’ve ever read that one though.

Apparently the person I was describing this book to was Jane, but we can’t remember why. All is good because she might look for a copy for her nephew’s birthday.
