Review: This is a book about Fireman Small and his encounter with Santa. It is fictional because it is not something that can actually happen but the author does a great job of making it seem real. When Santa's suit shrinks Fireman Small takes it upon himself to deliver the rest of the presents. He shows his reader that size doesn't matter, that there is always a way to help. ( )

Book description
PreSchool-K–After a busy day helping Mayor Mole obtain and decorate the town Christmas tree, Fireman Small (a one-man fire department) returns to Station 9 for a well-earned rest and is awakened by Santa, who has fallen in the coal bin. Fireman Small washes and dries his red suit, but finds that it has shrunk and that Santa is fast asleep in his bed. The resourceful helper hops into his fire truck to finish delivering the last of the presents, saving Christmas. Readers will enjoy the same easy-flowing, rhyming text, nicely paced tension, and comical, charming watercolor cartoons found in the previous "Fireman Small" titles (Houghton).–M. W.
