"There'll be a hot time in the old town tonight."

Taking off from the popular old song, Mrs. O'Leary's Cow tells the story of an exciting rescue. When the mischievous cow kicks over the lantern in Mrs. O'Leary's barn, she never imagines the disaster it will cause. But the heroic fire brigade comes through. A book for all the young firemen and firewomen on your list.
