Maybelle the Cable Car


Based on real events that occurred in San Francisco, Maybelle the Cable Car by Virginia Lee Burton tells the story of how the people of San Francisco saved their cable cars through the democratic process. The book is a lively and joyful celebration of cable cars, the city of San Francisco, and the voice of the people. Original artwork from Burton was taken from the archives of the San Francisco Public Library in order to create this colorful and charming edition of Maybelle.
