Mike Mulligan and his Steam Shovel by Virginia Lee Burton, Houghton Mifflin Company, Boston, 1939.
This is one of the good old classic books which children continue to love. Even though steam shovels are outdated; this story is not. Mike Mulligan are an inseparable team. Mike feels he and his steam shovel can do as much work in a day, as a hundred men with shovels in a week. As it turns out, he ends up having to prove it.
The part I like about this story is that Mike and his steam shovel find a way to retire together.
