    "Firefighters rush! Scurry! / Down the pole. Slide! Hurry!" Preschoolers will point at the bright pictures and act out the urgent, noisy rescue drama in this simple story. With a chanting rhyme and precise, brightly colored computerized illustrations, the double-page spreads show the fast action while the words imitate the clanging bells and screeching alarms ("Whee-ahh! Whooo!"), as the big, zooming truck rushes to put out the flames and save people from a burning house. Although the illustrator is different, this book will attract fans of Hubbell's previous tales about vehicles, encouraging them to take part in zooming, clanging play--and the louder the noise, the better.

    PreS-Gr 1 –The author of Trucks (2003) and Cars (2006, both Marshall Cavendish) presents another winner, this time about community heroes. The tale begins with the "Clang! Clang! Clang!" of the alarm. The firefighters rush to get dressed and board their truck, along with Spot, the firehouse Dalmatian. Brief, pulsing, rhythmic text flows across the pages: "Swing aboard! Hit the gas./Ladder truck roars, heads out fast./Sirens screech–Whee-ahh! Whooo!/Pumper truck comes zooming through!" The crew arrives at the burning building, hauls out the hoses, and rescues the people trapped inside. After a tiring day, the team (including one female) heads back to the station for rest and food, until the bell sounds again. The digital, cartoon-style artwork is simple. Done in vibrant hues of predominantly primary colors, the pictures blend clean backdrops with more detailed views of the firefighters and their equipment. This attractive book on a popular topic will be a big hit at storytime and perfect for one-on-one sharing.–DeAnn Okamura, San Mateo County Library, CA
