BookList Review

Fire Engine No. 9

Booklist


From Booklist, Copyright (c) American Library Association. Used with permission.

*Starred Review* It's a calm day at the fire station until the alarm sounds, the dalmatian barks, and firefighters slide down the pole. Fire Engine No. 9 speeds through the streets, siren blaring and horn honking. At the burning building, one firefighter climbs in through a window and rescues a baby. Soon, the fire is out and the family is grateful. From the quiet opening to the dramatic rush to reach the scene and douse the fire, the digital artwork shapes the main narrative. With great flair, Austin uses color, texture, and even form to amplify the drama, as when the formerly upright fire engine leans forward, straining to reach the fire in time. The brief text mainly carries the sounds, such as the dog's BARK! BARK! BARK! and staccato words, such as instructions to the baby-toting rescuer: CRAWL! CRAWL! Young children will enjoy chiming in on the many sound effects and other repeated words, while the well-constructed, colorful illustrations offer pleasures of their own. An appended page offers kids nine bits of practical advice on what to do when a home is on fire. On the handsome endpapers, the firefighters' tools show up distinctly against the crimson backgrounds. Highly recommended for young fire engine fans.--Phelan, Carolyn Copyright 2015 Booklist

PreS-Gr 1-On a bright sunny day, Engine No. 9 responds to the fire at the corner of Fourth and Main. The first of three dramatic vertical spreads shows the firemen sliding down the pole. They suit up and rush to the engine, the rings of the alarm ("BRRRRIIING!") are repeated over and over in various letter sizes. Sandwiched between the black billowing smoke and the dark silhouettes of other vehicles, Engine No. 9 speeds forward with sirens blasting ("WEOOO! WEOOO! HONK! HONK!"). Youngsters are caught up in the same urgency as the firefighters, who quickly hook up their hoses and turn the water on the red-gold flames. Climbing the ladder to the second floor, a firefighter breaks a window, crawls under the smoke, and rescues a crying baby. Back on the ground, the family is safely reunited at Luigi's restaurant. The fire is out, and the equipment is stored away. The final spread shows a picnic at the fire station provided by Luigi's new food truck. Signs read "Thank you, ENGINE No. 9" and "ALL NEW! Mobile Lunch Buffet!" The endpapers feature fire equipment clearly labeled. A fire safety list from FEMA is included. VERDICT The exceptionally fine, full-color graphic artwork combined with the sound and action words make this book a surefire winner.-Mary Jean Smith, formerly at Southside Elementary School, Lebanon, TN © Copyright 2015.
