Overview

“I am delighted to know that this classic piece of Americana, Little Toot, will be enjoyed by readers of all ages for years go come.” –Eric Carle

First published in 1939, this classic story of the energetic tugboat is brought to new life in this restored edition. With the help and support of Hardie Gramatky’s estate, to mark the 100th anniversary of his birth, we have used archived first editions and Hardie’s original paintings to restore Little Toot to its full glory, bringing back a richness of color that has been lost in decades of reprintings. This new edition also features several of the artist’s full-color manuscript sketches, never before seen in print, and reintroduces the book’s exquisite original endpapers.
 

Praise

Praise for Little Toot by Hardie Gramatky:

“I am delighted to know that this classic piece of Americana, Little Toot, will be enjoyed by readers of all ages for many years to come.”–Eric Carle

“How delightful to revisit the seaworthy world of brave Little Toot–that little tugboat who proves his courage and earns his manhood riding atop Gramatky’s superb, water, wild waves. This book has a sweet innocence and joy that now seems thoroughly lost.”–Maurice Sendak
