The Fire Station by Robert Munsch

Bestselling Munsch classic now available as a board book. What child wouldn't love to go for a ride on a fire truck? In this all-time favorite, two kids visit a fire station. While they are exploring a fire truck, an alarm sounds, and away they go to the rescue! In his inimitable way, Munsch turns the story into a hilarious romp that ends with the kids in the bath after helping to battle a fire that turned them all kinds of crazy colors. Now available with a simplified, revised text in a toddler-friendly board book edition, this story will delight very young children discovering it for the first time.


This Munsch story is still humorous.--Tanya Boudreau Resource Links (12/01/2012)
