Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Here Come Our Firefighters! by Chris Demarest offers a behind-the-scenes tour of the station house. A firetruck stretches across the length of one spread that folds out into three panels; labels name each part (e.g. extension ladder and tow hook). Pull-tabs help a firefighter slide down a pole, while a pop-up highlights a burning building.

Format: Hardcover
Over the years, I've bought many pop-up books for my 5-year-old. This one is, without doubt, the most entertaining pop-up book I've seen. Many pop-up books suffer from pointless, non-interactive, or non-functioning pop-up animations. Not this one!
You get, in order,
1) A slide mechanism with a dog pulling covers off a firefighter,
2) Another slide mechanism with a firefighter sliding down a firepole,
3) A side view of a fire truck, with flaps showing the inside,
4) More flaps, showing the operation of a fire hydrant, and also acting as a simple animation for the firefighters,
5) Yet another flap, with a firefighter donning a breathing mask,
6) An extremely cool 2-page full pop-up, showing a house engulfed in flames, complete with a fire truck, firefighters climbing a ladder, and other firefighters shooting water in the front door,
7) A slide mechanism showing a firefighter cutting a hole in the floor with an axe,
8) A flap showing a fire being put out with a water hose, and
9) A fold-out pop-up showing the fire engine pulling out of the station for the next call.
As that run-down shows, you get a lot of interaction AND a lot of learning going on with this book. Very highly recommended.

This book is really fun and has great pop-up features. It's hard to find now, but worth the search for a copy.

Great little pop-up book for the little boy (or girl) in your life that's into fire trucks. They have some really cute pop-ups and moveable parts.

More About the Author

Born in the 1950s, Chris Demarest was influenced by both his parents' artist abilities. His mother once worked for the Walt Disney animation studios and his father was a life-long doodler. In the upstairs attic of his parents' house, Demarest's father escaped to draw pictures of airplanes. That passion led his father to join the US Army Air Force in WWII, flying the dangerous missions from India into China, referred to as 'the Hump".

Demarest spent most of his years in publishing doing a cartoon, light-hearted style, but tapped into his youth and began working on a series of adventure books. Firefighters A to Z became a NY Time Best Book 2000. Documenting more firefighting careers, USCG work and the Hurricane Hunters, Demarest does all his research first hand. In 2004, he flew with the Hurricane Hunters out of Biloxi Mississippi into Hurricane Ivan, a Cat 4 storm.

His latest book, ARLINGTON: A History of Arlington National Cemetery will be published by Roaring Brook Press, Fall 2010.
