School Library Journal
K-Gr 3Marston's revised title (Dodd, 1984; o.p.) exhibits some state-of-the-art equipment. Crisp, clear, colorful photographs replace the black-and-white photos of the earlier edition. Minority and female fire-fighters, as well as details of fire fighter culture, have been added, making the book even more appealing. Although the title indicates only fire trucks, Marston includes fireboats, airplanes, helicopters, and SuperScoopers. New information is provided about making holes in burning buildings, drill teams, fire-fighter humor, Dalmations, safety training for children, and antique and future equipment. Less text is more in this case; while cursory, it is concise and appropriate for the intended audience. An index makes the volume more useful than Fire Truck (DK, 1995). An excellent update for young fire truck aficionados.Marsha McGrath, Clearwater Public Library, FL
