4.0 out of 5 stars The Fire Station Dec 3 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
We love the books by this pair (Munsch and Martchenko). The Fire Station was an immediate hit with my soon to be four year old. Not only does it have the requisite fire engine, but the kid characters are curious, smart, adventurous and have relate-to personalities. The writing is inventive and colorful, is great for read-aloud, and doesn't talk down to kid readers. Martchenko's illustrations are great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great story about a very forward girl Dec 1 2003
Format:Paperback
This is a great story for kids who love fire engines, kids who are irrepressible, or kids who know another kid who just won't take no for an answer.
Michael's friend Sheila won't let the word "no" stop her; not from Michael, and not from any of the adults. She wants to see the fire station so she takes Michael in with her and asks for a tour. The friendly fireman agrees, but then Sheila wants a ride in the fire engine and is told "of course not." So, Sheila gets in the engine anyway (dragging Michael along despite his protests), and wouldn't you know it, the alarm goes off, and the two of them are part of a huge downtown fire detail.
Martchenko's vibrant pictures, as in so many books he does with Munsch, are glorious. And the ending can lead to a great discussion with your child about learning a lesson, and how some people have more trouble doing so than others. The two children have such definite personalities, Michael the insecure worrier and Sheila clearly on her way to thrill-seeking sports such as glacier skating.
This is one my kids asked me to read them many times over.

I am a Robert Munsch fan and it has been great to be able to read these books to my children and in board book format so that they stay intact with little fingers flipping through and pulling on them! These books will last through multiple children! And my kids love the stories and want to read them everyday!

5.0 out of 5 stars My Grandson Loves Fire Trucks May 17 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
He was thrilled with the book. He is almost 3 and has been talking about fire trucks since he could first talk. We watch videos of fire trucks and now he has a book with a cute little story about 2 kids getting into mischief.
