About the Author

Conventional wisdom has it that Watty Piper was a pseudonym for Arnold Munk of Platt & Munk, but an email correspondent informs us that Watty Piper was the pen name of her great, great, great aunt Mabel C. Bragg. Other research shows Mabel C. Bragg as the author of The Pony Engine, which Platt & Munk purchased from Doubleday in 1930 and published as The Little Engine That Could. Alas, that's all we know. These books retain their intense popularity through the familiar stories and wonderful color illustrations by Eulalie and the quality printing job by Platt & Munk.

Loganberry Legacy

We have requests for all of these anthologies, and often have some in stock. Although most of these are out-of-print now, they were reprinted for years into the sixties, with several different bindings. Please inquire.
