Synopsis

The Little Steamroller by Graham Greene

Every day the Little Steamroller works at London Airport clearing the runways for the aeroplanes 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 which were written by Graham Green and illustrated by Edward Ardizzone. First published by The Bodley Head in 1974, this new edition brings the classic little steamroller back to life for a whole new generation.

About the Author

Graham Greene
Henry Graham Greene, OM (October 2, 1904 – April 3, 1991) was a prolific English novelist, playwright, short story writer and critic whose works explore the doubtfulness of modern man and ambivalent moral or political issues in a contemporary setting. Greene combined serious literary acclaim with wide popularity. Although Greene objected strongly to being described as a mere "Catholic novelist", his religion informs most of his novels, and many of his best works (e.g. Brighton Rock, The Heart of the Matter and The Power and the Glory) are explicitly Roman Catholic in content and preoccupations. His later works show a greater interest in international politics, e.g. The Quiet American
