Fire Truck

Fire trucks fascinate Matt, so much so that he starts and ends his day thinking about them. When he imagines actually becoming one, he zooms around to put out fire and save his community – actually in his house – and is brought back to being a little boy by the cozy smell of pancakes. Crisp black lines with touches of red are used in this imaginative excursion, which also invites readers to count related objects from one to ten. The boy has another imaginative adventure in Trucks Trucks Trucks (1998) where trucks that haul, lift, and more grow in size in his room.
