“A well-timed reminder that small bodies can hold big hearts.”—Kirkus Reviews “Yee’s rhyming text bounces along effortlessly, while amusing details in the cheery watercolors . . . add to the holiday fun.”—Horn Book “Readers will enjoy the same easy-flowing, rhyming text, nicely paced tension, and comical, charming watercolor cartoons found in the previous Fireman Small titles.”—School Library Journal
It’s Christmas Eve, and Fireman Small has had a busy day—he helped Mayor Mole find a Christmas tree, and he decorated it from tip to toe. When he arrives back at Firehouse Nine, all Fireman Small wants is a good night’s sleep before Christmas morning.
But a crash and a muffled ho-ho-ho suddenly wake him up. Rushing downstairs, Fireman Small discovers that he has a big problem on his hands.
Join Fireman Small as he takes to the snow-covered streets to save Christmas the best way he knows how. With him at the reins, it may not be reindeer hooves that you hear on your rooftop.
Favorite characters and companion titles ring in the holidays. Fireman Small replaces a sleepy Santa in A Small Christmas by Wong Herbert Yee. The diminutive hero finds Kris Kringle covered in soot in the coal bin; the wee fellow inadvertently shrinks the famous red suit in the dryer, and winds up delivering gifts around town via fire truck in Santa's stead.
