Everyone in Folly Cove knows Virginia Lee as "Jinnee." With her magical wands she can draw whatever she imagines, but for her sons Aris and Michael, she draws the most wonderful characters of all: Big Machines with friendly names like Mary Anne, Maybelle, and Katy. Her marvelous magical wands can make anything move - even a cheerful Little House. The collaborative work of author Sherri Duskey Rinker and illustrator John Rocco, "Big Machines: The Story of Virginia Lee Burton" is a loving tribute to Virginia Lee Burton in homage to the storied life of one of the most beloved creators in children's literature. A thoroughly charming picture book for children ages 4 to 7, it should be noted that "Big Machines" is also available in a digital book format (Kindle, $12.99).
