ABOUT THIS BOOK

A little-known Christmas tale by the author of Goodnight Moon is now a Little Golden Book that’ll keep children 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!

Among her many bestselling Golden titles are Home for a Bunny, The Golden Egg Book, Mister Dog, The Color Kittens, Seven Little Postmen, and The Sailor Dog.
 
BOB STAAKE is the creator of many books for children, including My Pet Book; Bluebird; The Red Lemon, a New York Times Best Illustrated Book; and The Donut Chef, a Children’s Choice Book Awards finalist.
