Description

Station 1 is always a busy place. When there aren't fires to put out there are plenty of chores to do. And on Thanksgiving Day there's a big feast to prepare. Lou is in charge of dinner this year, but just as they finish shopping, a call comes in. They drop everything to get to the fire. Other calls interrupt Lou's cooking throughout the day, and it looks like there may not be a Thanksgiving dinner for these firefighters.

Luckily, the grateful families in their neighborhood show their thanks in a thoughtful, perfect way.

This heart-warming story about dedicated firefighters and their appreciative community is illustrated with stunning, dramatic paintings.
