Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 2
Mammano has added another winning title to her series featuring adventurous rhinoceroses. Here, they have put away their surf-, snow- and skateboards to become intrepid firefighters. They brave burning buildings, fight "major ragers," and report to the scene of multiple-car crashes. Some work as smoke jumpers or rescue townsfolk from sweeping floods. The kindhearted heroes also make "band-aid calls" to pluck stranded kittens out of trees. When they are not out on their "rig," there is plenty to keep the rhinos busy in the firehouse. They joke around as they wash and maintain the trucks, but when the bell clangs, the "rhinos who rescue are off again!" The text is sprinkled with firefighting terms collected in a glossary of "Rescue Rap." Psychedelic illustrations increase the action and sense of adventure. The collagelike watercolors feature mosaic backgrounds and orange flames resembling exotic flowers. The unusual text layout in waves and arcs further enhances the excitement. This enjoyable story may be paired with Nancy E. Shaw's Sheep in a Jeep (Houghton, 1988) for a fun-filled storyhour.

Kirkus Reviews
The rhinos are back! This time they move away from sports and explore the firefighting profession. Mammano's hook throughout the rhino series is the vocabulary she introduces to young children. "In full turnouts the rhinos get to work. They are pumped! They make the hydrant and pay out the hoses." To first-timers, it will seem like a foreign language. To those familiar with the series, a flip to the "Rescue Rap" glossary will help readers understand the bolded terms. The text follows the rhinos as they do the many different jobs of a firefighter, including smoke-jumping a wildfire, responding to vehicular accidents and doing chores around the firehouse. Visually pleasing batik-like geometric patterns fill the watercolor backgrounds, while curving text emphasizes the action. The rhinos, though, have only a few facial expressions. Nonetheless, this may be a hit with children acquainted with firefighters, or with those who love anything having to do with them. (Picture book. 3-7)
