Everyone loves The Little Engine That Could, that classic tale of the determined little engine that, despite its size, triumphantly pulls a train full of toys to the waiting children on the other side of a mountain. The Little Engine that Could is an American fairytale that gained popularity and became a classic children’s book in 1930 when published by Platt & Munk under the pen name Watty Piper. An earlier version of the story was printed in the New York Tribune in 1906, and in the same year in a Sunday School publication Wellspring for Young People under the title “Thinking One Can.” The 1954 Platt & Munk version with illustrations by George and Doris Hauman is the best-known version of this book. -

About Discover Books

Our company was launched based on the fundamental belief that used books have value and should never go to waste. Prior to our founding, many of our staff worked in the thrift industry where we saw millions of books being sent to landfills each year. With each discarded book, we thought of the imagination, magic, and knowledge lost forever to a garbage heap and we endeavored to find a better way.

We think books should achieve their greatest possible purpose: Whether purchased by another reader, donated to help a child acquire the lifelong skill of literacy, or recycled as a new product, it has a story to tell. We let stories live on.
