When the train full of toys breaks down, the other engines refuse to help. Then along came "The Little Engine" who said over and over, "I think I can." This character building story has been beloved by many generations of children.
Watty Piper is the pseudonym of Arnold Munk, author behind the classic retelling of The Little Engine That Could and cofounder of Platt & Munk Publishers (now part of Grosset & Dunlap.) Munk's retelling of the beloved children's tale has sold millions of copies since its 1930 publication and inspired generations to believe they can.
