Summary

Summary

Firefighter Frank has one of the most important jobs in the community. Now young children can thrill to the sight of the shiny fire engines all ready to go. They can follow along as Frank keeps his gear in tip-top shape, gives safety tips to visiting children, and cooks supper for the crew. And when the alarm bell clangs, Frank and his team race to the scene to fight the fire and keep everyone safe. Like Apple Farmer Annie, this picture book, painted with Monica Wellington's trademark color flair, simply and delightfully treats a topic that's already a field-trip fixture. Firefighter Frank also promotes teamwork and safety while celebrating a profession for which admiration is at an all-time high. As appealing as a hook-and-ladder zooming down the street, this book will leap off the shelves faster than booksellers can say, "Where's the fire?"


Author Notes

Arthur William Symons was born on February 28, 1965 in Wales. He was a British poet, magzine editor and critic. In 1884 - 1886 he edited four of Bernard Quaritch's Shakespeare Quarto Facsimiles, and in 1888 -1889 seven plays of the "Henry Irving" Shakespeare. His major editorial feat was his work with the short-lived Savoy.

His first volume of verse, Days and Nights (1889), consisted of dramatic monologues. His later verse is influenced by a close study of modern French writers, of Charles Baudelaire, and especially of Paul Verlaine. He reflects French tendencies both in the subject-matter and style of his poems.. Symons contributed poems and essays to The Yellow Book, including an important piece which was later expanded into The Symbolist Movement in Literature, which would have a major influence on William Butler Yeats and T. S. Eliot. From late 1895 through 1896 he edited, along with Aubrey Beardsley, The Savoy, a literary magazine. Noteworthy contributors included Yeats, George Bernard Shaw, and Joseph Conrad. Symons was also a member of the Rhymer's Club founded by Yeats in 1890.

In 1892, The Minister's Call, Symons's first play, was produced by the Independent Theatre Society - A Private Club. Arthur Symons passed away in January 1945.

School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 1-This story takes readers through a day in the life of a firefighter, which includes mundane grocery shopping, equipment maintenance, and racing to the call of a fire. The descriptive and instructive tone makes for a story that is best shared one-on-one instead of with a group. A list of fire safety tips from Firefighter Frank is appended. The illustrations are trademark Wellington-full, round, pleasant faces amid brilliant colors. Text sits on the left surrounded by simple images depicted in the scene on the right. For example, on the page that describes the firefighters quickly leaving for the emergency, the boxed text is surrounded by their boots, hats, gloves, oxygen, and so on, opposite a full illustration of the scene. This is a good introduction to the subject, especially if a trip to a firehouse is imminent.-Linda M. Kenton, San Rafael Public Library, CA (c) Copyright 2010.
