About The Book

From bestselling and Caldecott Honor artist Stephen T. Johnson comes a multi-concept novelty book that’s a book and toy in one with sturdy moving parts young readers can play with while they read.

Firefighters in training can get their own firetrucks ready and learn to tell time with this interactive concept book. It’s a new day at the firehouse and you have twenty minutes to get the truck ready. Hoses, ladders, radio—let’s go! Eight pop-out pieces, one steering wheel, two pull tabs, nine turn knobs, a magic slate, and a dazzling grand finale will provide hours of fun. And, the pieces can back into the book, so the creation can be rebuilt time and again.
