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