"Dad created this special painting of Little Toot as a thank you to Eleanor Street, a beloved town librarian who was retiring. Thirty-five years later she must have died down in North Carolina and her heirs put the painting into an auction. Luckily for us we heard about it and were able to purchase the original. I love how upbeat this mischievous tugboat is, and I especially love the way Dad autographed it With love from Little Toot and Hardie Gramatky. Perfect for any child's room."
