Reviews

"A hundred years from now, when people want to know what we told our children about September 11th in New York City, Kalman's book should be among the first answers."
"Sets forth an adventure, commemorates an anniversary, offers an interesting bit of history, celebrates the underdog, and honors the firefighting profession."
"Exciting, uplifting, and child-sensitive....Revisits the tragedy without the terror and conveys pride without preachiness; consider purchasing an extra copy."
