Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
The fire alarm sounds and the firemen, (an assortment of anthropomorphic animals), put on their yellow gear and jump into the fire truck. They roar to the scene with sirens howling and once there put out the flames and rescue an occupant of the enflamed building. The rhyming text will appeal to young listeners and the bright, amusing illustrations are filled with things to discuss. The last page offers a recap of fire fighting equipment.
NY Times Book Review
..[C]aptures the glamour and excitement of fire engiens that children find so appealing.
