Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In a sequel to Fireman Small, Fireman Small: Fire Down Below! Wong Herbert Yee presents the teeny tiny firefighter as he flees the rain-soaked station for a drier night at the Pink Hotel. But when Small smells smoke not only must he get all the animal guests to safety ("Stop drop and roll!" he commands), but also find an inventive way to extinguish the fire. (Sept.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Children's Literature
When a raindrop disturbs Fireman Small's sleep, he leaves the fire station and checks into the Pink Hotel for the night. Although he is dry there, he has trouble sleeping due to noisy guests inside and honking horns outside. He finally stuffs cotton balls in his ears and is dozing off when his nose notices a familiar smell. Smoke! He dresses quickly, smashes the fire alarm case, and runs up and down the halls directing all of the occupants to the roof. They dash down the fire escape and Fireman Small returns to the roof where he uses his tiny ax to chop great holes. The water from the storm rushes down through the building putting out the fire. He solves the problem of the dislocated hotel guests by inviting them to the fire station where they sleep in piles under umbrellas as the roof continues to leak. The colorful cartoonlike illustrations feature a variety of charming personified animals, although Fireman Small is human. This book is fun to read, but some may question the concept of a fireman on duty leaving the station and stuffing cotton in his ears to sleep when it seems he should be alert. 2001, Houghton Mifflin, $15.00. Ages 3 to 6. Reviewer:Phyllis Kennemer
School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-Fireman Small is trying to get some well-deserved sleep. A leaky roof at the fire station keeps him awake, so he decides to check into the Pink Hotel. Then, "Just at the moment his droopy eyes close,/Something disturbing starts tickling his nose." Springing into action, he sounds the fire alarm and leads the guests to safety. He instructs Alligator to take the stairs, not the elevator, and cautions Farmer Pig, "There's no time to dress or make up the bed,/Just grab a wet towel to cover your head." Everyone makes it outdoors, and Fireman Small saves the hotel. The rhyming sentences are well crafted and full of action. Children will relate to Yee's watercolor illustrations of the diminutive firefighter who cannot see over the hotel reception desk and has trouble reaching the door handle. Young listeners will applaud his heroism and learn safety tips in the process.-Linda Ludke, London Public Library, Ontario, Canada Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
He may be pint-sized, and he may be tired after a busy day at the firehouse, but Fireman Small puts on the turbocharger when he smells smoke coming from a vent in this madcap story-the third starring Fireman Small. When a raindrop splashes on the nose of Fireman Yee while he tries to grab some winks at the firehouse-there's a hole in the ceiling-he shuffles off to the Pink Hotel. "Just at the moment his droopy eyes close, / Something disturbing starts tickling his nose." Smoke-and where there's smoke, there's fire. Fireman Small rushes about the packed hotel telling all the animal guests to move fast up to the roof: "Pounding on doors to let everyone know, / ‘Hurry-HURRY! Fire down below!' " He assembles everyone on the rooftop and sends them down the fire escape before the little fireman chops a hole in the roof to let the rain put out the fire. Although Yee spices this tale with visual comedy-a pig tends to her underarms with a blow dryer, an alligator wears a silly hat-the same creative energy didn't go into the verse, which is painfully forced: "Toad's in a tizzy, hopping and croaking. / The jazz band next door is really smoking. / ‘Your poncho's on fire,' wails drummer Mole. / Fireman Small hollers, ‘Stop-drop-and roll!' " Still, where there's a fireman, there's a reader-and some fire safety tips, too. "(Picture book. 2-5)"
