There'll be a hot time in the old town tonight is a children's book about the Great Chicago Fire of 1871. This book is originally an American folk song that was rewritten to be a children's book. I enjoyed this book although I found it somber. The illustrations in this book was excellent. The pictures, although most contained fire, were fun and not scary. I feel that this book, due to its subject matter, could have easily become gruesome. However, the illustrations being very cartoonish helped keep the tone lite. I also enjoyed this book because of the writing. The song was turned into a book but the author changed some of the words to better fit this written format. I thought the changed helped the book flow together nicely. It made the subject matter less overwhelming and ultimately helped the book become successful.
