Very cute illustrations and a great book for showing firefighters hard at work. I like that this book acknowledges that firefighters can be scared too (it's hard to be brave), for more sensitive readers the firefighter saves a puppy rather than a person trapped inside a burning building, and that it shows the long task of putting out a fire even after all of a building's occupants are saved.

Jenny Goebel writes lively picture books and middle grade novels with a magical twist. Fortune Falls was chosen as a Winter 2015-2016 Indies Next List pick and Grave Images was the Colorado Book Awards 2014 Winner for Juvenile Literature. She also wrote the penultimate, The 39 Clues Book: Doublecross: Mission Hurricane, and picture books: Foreman Farley has a Backhoe; Foreman Frankie is Handy and The Firefighter. Things Jenny enjoys the most: faith, family, friends, a steaming cup of tea, a good book, and exploring Colorado’s endless beauty.
