Every day the Little Steamroller works at London Airport clearing the runways for the airplanes and every day the people on the gate make fun of him. But they do not know of the time that this little steamroller defeated the Black Hand Gang—the infamous smuggling gang. This is his story. The Little Steamroller is one of the four titles in the Little Train series. First published in 1974, this new edition brings the classic little steamroller back to life for a whole new generation.
