Little Engine That Could with new art by Loren Long


"I think I can, I think I can," said the Little Blue Engine, and she hitched herself to the little train.

The happy little train breaks down and the clown and elephant are in despair. How will they get the toys over the mountain to the boys and girls by morning?
Every engine, big and small, passes them by, until the least likely and littlest engine of all decides to give it a try. "I think I can, I think I can," the Little Blue Engine chugs as she starts up the big mountain, pulling the train full of toys.
Everyone loves The Little Engine That Could, one of the most popular picture books of all time. Now the great Loren Long (Mr. Peabody's Apples) has brilliantly re-illustrated this classic story, bringing it exuberantly to life for today's child.

The Little Engine That Could is one of the most popular and famous children's books of all time. Over the years, it has sold many millions of copies. This newly illustrated edition is based on "The Complete, Original Edition," retold by Watty Piper and illustrated by George and Doris Hauman, originally published by Platt and Munk, now part of the Prnguin Young Readers Group. Over the years, its title and its refrain of "I think I can" have become a permanent part of the American vernacular.
