The Fire Station by Robert Munsch


The Fire Station by Robert Munsch

Follow the fictional adventures inspired by two children who were actually in the audience at one of the author's own storytelling events! Cautious Michael and strong-willed Sheila invite themselves for a tour of the local fire station and look inside a fire engine only to find themselves trapped inside when it is called out to an emergency! At the scene of the fire they become so smokey and dirty that when they arrive home they are unrecognisable and have to spend days in the bath to get clean again. Of course, that doesn't stop Sheila wanting to visit the police station the very next day...

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
