Katy, a brave and untiring tractor, who pushes a bulldozer in the summer and a snowplow in the winter, makes it possible for the townspeople to do their jobs.
In 2009, we are celebrating the 100th anniversary of Virginia Lee Burton's birth. As part of this celebration a glitter-cover edition of Katy and the Big Snow, complete with snowy stickers, has been created. In this enduring winter favorite from the Caldecott Medal winner Burton, Katy the snowplow finally gets her chance to shine when a blizzard blankets the city and everyone is relying on Katy to help dig out. This new paperback is perfect for gift giving. Children love sharing Katy’s shining moment of glory and will inevitably admire her “chug, chug, chug” endurance.

Notă biografică

Virginia Lee Burton (1909-1968) was the talented author and illustrator of some of the most enduring books ever written for children. The winner of the 1942 Caldecott Medal for THE LITTLE HOUSE, Burton's books include heroes and happy endings, lively illustrations, and a dash of nostalgia. She lived with her two sons, Aristides and Michael, and her husband George Demetrios, the sculptor, in a section of Gloucester, Massachusetts, called Folly Cove. Here she taught a class in design and from it emerged the Folly Cove designers, a group of internationally known professional artisans. She is the author of many classic children's picture books, including MIKE MULLIGAN AND HIS STEAM SHOVEL and KATY AND THE BIG SNOW.


"Bright, vigorous pictures with plenty of action and endless detail portray Katy at work for the Highway Department of the city of Geoppolis." —Horn Book
From "'Katy' Springs to Musical Life: Cape Ann Symphony Concert Centers on Children's Classic" by Gail McCarthy
Gloucester Daily Times (1/21/2009)
Ross Burton on Virginia Lee Burton
"Ross noted that his aunt was both a tremendous artist, and a woman of tremendous values and understanding."
'For example, "Mike Mulligan" is about reinvention. "The Little House" is about family values and "Katy and the Big Snow" is about passion to contribute, to work, to put something into the community. Aunt Ginny is a person who had a real sense of being and belonging,' he said.
"Ross Burton described his aunt as a person with a buoyant personality and constant smile."
'I remember her like it was yesterday,' he said. 'Ginny had a quiet presence though she was a very strong person. She didn't have to say a lot, and when she did, people listened. She was always smiling and giving off good cheer no matter how things were for her. She had an uplifting quality with everything she came in contact with. That's what I remember. She was a gift to all who knew her, and anyone who knew her would smile. It was a contagious process.'
The Making of Katy and the Big Snow
"Virginia Lee Burton would hang out sketching the heavy machinery at the local public works yard, day after day, week after week and month after month."
"For every book she wrote, Ross Burton said she researched the machinery in great detail."
'In the case of Katy, she knew every piece of the apparatus. She was a student of her content,' he said. 'Cape Ann was a source of everything she wrote. Every book had to do with Cape Ann in one way or the other.'
