Maybelle was a cable car . . . a San Francisco cable car. Cling clang . . . Clingety clang, up and down and around she went. That is, until the City Fathers said the cable cars were too old fashioned and must be replaced with big modern buses. No! said the people of San Francisco. So they rallied in defense of their beloved cable cars - the only ones left in the whole wide world. The audio production includes lively sound effects and original music.

    " 47 months - a fairly wordy book recounting how the San Francisco trolleys were saved. Probably not an everyday read but we enjoyed it from the library. "

    " Just okay...definitely not as great as some of her other books. My son is a HUGE fan of Mike Mulligan and Choo Choo so we have been checking all her other books out of the library each week. This one is cute, just not as cute. Also, I think my son didn't really get the whole moral of the story. "

    " i really loved this story as one of tender conservation, but there was a little too much information going on to hold the interest of the kids, even with my voices, noises and faces. "

    " A sweet story of bus versus cable car with great illustrations of the city of San Francisco. Your kids will be cheering for Maybelle as the people of San Francisco fight to keep their cable cars. Based on actual events. "
