Ring-Ding-Ding! Fireman Small is called into action in this bright little board book. Short rhyming sentences of just a few words per page, coupled with vibrant illustrations, bring us along with Fireman Small as he puts out a fire and saves the day. Yee's work is filled with all the things children love - silly, likable characters; rhymes; bright colors; detail; and much more. Here he has scaled these all down to a size just right for even the youngest of listeners.
Wong Herbert Yee lives in Michigan, where he writes and illustrates books for children including the Mouse and Mole series and the Fireman Small series.

This book provide tidbits of information about the civic duties of firefighters, just right for toddlers wondering what a siren means. And Fireman Small, resembling nothing so much as a busy jellybean, makes a perfect vicarious hero for preschoolers.” Kirkus Reviews
