Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In a timely addition to Pelican's line of Christmas books, they add Firefighter's Night Before Christmas by Kimbra Cutlip, illus. by James Rice. A surprise guest visits while the team answers a call for help; they return to a bevy of gifts.
School Library Journal
K-Gr 3-The firefighters who pull the Christmas Eve shift are surprised when a red-suited fireman whose badge reads "Zero North" visits them. While the visitor is getting comfortable, an alarm sounds and the men rush off to save a burning furniture store. On their return, they find that Ol' Sergeant Nick left presents for everyone, including a shiny new pumper. Another takeoff on Clement C. Moore's Christmas standard, this picture book reads awkwardly and haltingly. Some of the rhymes are stilted and forced and the plot lacks imagination. Sketchy pen-and-ink and watercolor artwork accompanies the first-person text.-I. A. Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.

My husband and son are firefighters, which is the reason I purchased the book. When I have grandchildren someday, I can see myself reading this book over and over to them at Christmas time. The combination of a real firefighter's job, mixed in with Christmas enchantment, makes this a must read for any little firefighter in your life.
