Everyone in Folly Cove knows Virginia Lee as "Jinnee." With her magical wands she can draw whatever she imagines, but for 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.

A picture biography of Caldecott Medal winner Virginia Lee Burton, author of children's books like Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel and The Little House. Told in a dreamy manner with many references to Burton's artistic style, this story may appeal less to children and more to parents or grandparents who remember Burton's work from their own childhoods.
