Virginia Lee Burton

Beloved author/illustrator of many children's picture books involving the personification of machines & houses; Mike Mulligan & His Steamshovel, The Little House, Maybelle the Cable Car, Katy & the Big Snow, and Life Story

As Wikipedia put it so succinctly: "Virginia Lee Burton's books are notable for their swirling, stylized illustrations and her stories concerning technological change. Characters are apt to be buildings or machines." Great for getting little boys into books!
