More About Hardie Gramatky & Mark Burgess

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Hardie Gramatky was born in Dallas, TX, in 1907 but moved to California as a small boy after his father died of tuberculosis. He attended Stanford University (earning the tuition by working as a logger and a bank teller) and Chouinard Art Institute before becoming one of Disney's early animators in 1929. In the 1920s and 30s, he helped start the California Watercolor movement. In 1936, after a 6-year Disney contract expired, he left the company (earning $150 a week, a huge sum in the Depression) to move to New York City with his wife, artist Dorothea Cooke, to become illustrators. It was there, in his studio on Pearl Street, that Gramatky saw a Moran tugboat out his window that obviously didn't want to work and kept making figure 8s on the East River. So in 1939 after painting many watercolors of the busy harbor, Gramatky wondered what would happen if a "tug didn't want to tug" and wrote the story. The book got immediate attention and has been a favorite picture book ever since, and Gramatky's fine art watercolors and giclee prints continue to be prized. He died of cancer of the ileum in Westport, Connecticut, on April 29, 1979.

Hardie Gramatky was born in 1907 and died in 1979.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Little Toot  Jun 2, 2008
A wonderful child's book from the yesteryears--My mom read it to me as a child and it's just as great!
Little Toot for Tots!!  Jan 24, 2008
Much in the form of Thomas the Tank Engine, Little Toot presents the joy and foibles of life in a simple, easy to follow story line for children. The style is minimalistic but has plenty of emotion and guile.
Highly recommended. Read Little Toot to your little tot!!
A "Must Have" for your child's book collection  Jan 12, 2008
This is a beautiful book with a great story. I always favor giving books as gifts to young children and seek out "the classics." This one fits the bill!
What a joy!  Nov 29, 2007
What a joy to see the beautifully re-published restored edition of the classic book available again. I recently heard a glowing review of the restored edition on National Public Radio, and decided to purchase it for my five-year-old for Christmas. The story is timeless, and reminds children (and all of us) that we can make mistakes, but still go on to change our behaviors and do great good. It is as vividly-written as I had recalled from my own childhood -- not "dumbed-down" for children -- and the vibrant restored illustrations are glorious. The reviewer who who lamented an older edition will be delighted with this restored version. A wonderful gift to myself and my little boy this year.
What have they done?  Dec 1, 2006
My question is: Why did such the delightful story of Little Toot need to be abridged?

With the abridging you lose the rich descriptive langauge and many of the wonderful illustrations that go along with the story. Is this what we want for our childern?
