Reviews

Matej, going on four lives not too far from ladder Company 20, NYCFD. He has shelves of rolling fire-fighting toys and likes anything red. His first words on arising may be: "firetruck." Peter Sis ought to know, for Matej is his son. Running out of new fire truck books to read from, talented Peter wrote one of his own, Matt approving. Make way for a fieryfantasy. One day young Matej awoke, a red FIRE TRUCK himself! He was part of it, resembling his little red bed, but much larger, here painted across two full pages. It had onedriver, two ladders and everything else you might count, up to 10 big boots. He raced around on six wheels, with sirens blaring, rescued a cat and a teddy bear and put out a fire, all inthe living room. Then Matt smelled something special, parked in red cap and suit at the kitchen table, and the little boy ate his pancakes. --Morrison, Scientific American YoungReaders Book Award, December 1998
