Guy and the Fire-Engine
Guy and the Fire-EngineJohan Anderblad, illustrated by Filippa Widlund
A book with both facts and a story, suitable for four-year-olds. Giving cause for thought and true-to-life, a perfect book for reading aloud again and again. Guy lies in bed trying to sleep when he suddenly remembers a fire engine he saw earlier in the day. He asks his mother Bibbi if she has ever driven a fire engine and she has. She has driven all kinds of cars. She has even worked as a fire man and tells Guy all about the fire engine and how it can put out fires. Guy asks if she has ever saved an animal, and of course she has. Once when she worked as a fireman, an owl that had injured itself on an electric cable got stuck in an oak tree. With the help of a fire ladder and an animal rescuer Bibbi managed to get the owl down so the animal rescuer could take it. It’s all very exciting but finally Guy falls asleep.
In spring 2017 part two of the series will be published: Guy and the Police Car.
