Product Description

From Amazon

This old-fashioned tale about one little snowplow's determination in the face of a small-town blizzard has all the charm and moral grit of The Little Engine That Could. This isn't surprising, considering that Caldecott Medal-winning author Virginia Lee Burton (The Little House) specializes in bringing the inanimate to life with endearing illustrations and stories of fortitude and vulnerability. Katy, a red crawler tractor, "could do a lot of things," Burton explains early on. In the summer she is a bulldozer, helping to build and repair roads in the city of Geoppolis. In the winter, she turns into a snowplow, waiting and waiting for her chance to be useful. Most of the winters, though, the snowfalls are mild and the town doesn't need Katy. But when the big one finally hits, the town is buried in page after page of powder. The power lines are down. The doctor can't get his patient to the hospital. The fire department can't reach a burning house! "Everyone and everything was stopped but... KATY!" Suddenly, the entire community is dependent on one little snowplow. Children love witnessing Katy's shining moment of glory and will inevitably admire her "chug, chug, chug" endurance. (Ages 4 and older) --Gail Hudson --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Review

“Rachel Dratch has written a memoir that is funny, honest and optimistic.  It's like spending a delightful evening with Rachel, but in a format that allows you put her in your purse and enjoy her on the bus. (Rachel, I think Lynda Carter should play you in the movie and you should play your son.)” — Tina Fey

"A hilarious look at how unpredictable and beautiful life can be. Like Dratch, Girl Walks into a Bar... is honest, surprising and always funny." — Amy Poehler

"This is one of those books where a woman tells of her struggles with life and love. But here's the caveat: the struggles are hilarious and the woman is Rachel Dratch." — Sarah Silverman

Format: Hardcover
This book has given me endless amounts of joy. It has evoked the tears-are-streaming-down-my-face-and-now-my-tummy-slightly-hurts sort of laughter, as well as moments of genuine "aww, I can completely relate to what she is saying". It's like spending time with a close friend who has endless amounts of hilarious anecdotes to share, as well as a kind of relatable honesty that makes you love her even more. Also, after reading the book, I purchased the audio version, which is read by Ms. Dratch...and my goodness, nothing can compare to her reading her book out loud. She is so animated and expressive and takes the hilarity to a new level; voice impressions, sound effects and all. Well worth the read and most definitely worth the listen.

As far as memoirs go I really liked this book. Rachel Dratch is funny, sincere, and honest. The only thing I expected more of, but can understand why it wasn't in there (in terms of privacy), was her life as a single-mother or co-parent.

An autobiography about a very quiet life. If only one thing has ever happened to you, perhaps you shouldn't write a book, particularly if you're barely going to discuss that one thing. Look for Tina Fey's book or Amy Poehler's instead.
