By Steven R. McEvoy TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 20 Mar. 2013
Format: Hardcover
This was the first book both written and illustrated by mark Teague that we have read as a family. It is always interesting approaching a book written by an illustrator that you know from other books and series. You cannot help but have some preconceived ideas. Mark is part of the duo that has created the very popular 'How do dinosaurs ..." series. This was a fun read. The illustrations are wonderful and the story is entertaining. Children love the book and will ask for it to be read many times. In this book we join Edward and his cousin Judy as they spend the day at the fire station. They want to learn to be firefighters. Their adventure includes a fire drill and a real emergency. A great read for the family or in the classroom.

A visual treat 29 Jun. 2010
By J.Prather - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Any child even as young as 2 will find great fun in this stellar effort by Mark Teague. The story is pretty plain; one day Edward and Judy visit the firehouse and see all there is to see. We get to go along on a rescue of a kitten stuck in a tree and end the day with a well deserved rest. All the characters are dogs of course, and the firemen are all dalmations!

It's the illustrations that are the star. With his bold colors and expressive characters you almost don't need the text at all in order to follow the tale. The scene when Edward gets surprised by the fire alarm ringing is just phenomenal. I laughed out loud when I saw it, and I am well past 2! To see Judy coming down the firepole with Edward and all those dalmations will make every kid wish they were there. A big recommend for a book that kids will come back to again and again. More can be added to this story with each perusal of the illustrations, so there's plenty of opportunity for interaction and fun. Don't miss this visual treat.

Liked it enough to order it twice! 23 Aug. 2010
By K. Kane - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Lost the first book, but enjoy it enough that I ordered a new one! My family loves Mark Teague books; his illustrations are vibrant, but not cluttered, and offer great viewpoints / snapshots in time. The story itself is a little weak, not as fun and imaginative as "Dear Mrs. La Rue: Letters From Obedience School," but my 4-year old son requests it often.
Wow, G R E A T illustrations suck our 2-year old in! 11 April 2011
By Nathaniel Allen - Published on Amazon.com
I have to admit that I'm frequently disappointed when I crack open a new children's book to find bland or less-than-detailed drawings gracing the pages. Sure, I'll remind myself that the book is primarily for the kid's entertainment, not mine, and more often than not he'll find those "blah" drawings good enough to hold his attention.

Not so with FIREHOUSE. These drawings POP. Bright colors, crisp definition, expressive faces, subtle detail, and SUPERB perspectives. Wow! (Just a quick glance at that fire truck on the front cover and you've got the sense of speed and urgency -- this is repeated through the book. There's enough here to spend minutes on each page soaking in the detail and talking about everything that's happening.

The main character is a somewhat spastic little French Bulldog, and a second fire brigade of mice dot the illustrations mimicking the first-line dalmatians. And many of you will be happy to note that the Fire Chief is a woman (not that you can easily tell, as she looks like the other dalmatians without exaggerated lipstick, eyelashes or body parts).

If there's only one knock against the story, it's the rather odd and sudden ending. But than again, the whole story is rather odd and sudden, and our 2-year old certainly hasn't complained.

Adorable Story 28 Feb. 2014
By Emma Writer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Board book Verified Purchase
I saw this book at my local Barnes and Nobles and had to get it, Amazon is my preferred book site so I purchased it here. It is an adorable story, well written and this is coming from a Firefighter EMT who knows the topic and enjoyed the contents. I especially loved the female fire chief!
