This high-action (yet toddler-friendly) beat-by-beat look at an emergency response joins Fire Engine No. 9 in board book format! Rescue Squad No. 9 must spring into action when a young sailor and her dog are stranded during a storm! Follow the crew as they scramble aboard their helicopter and speedboat, racing through the waves and winds to the rescue. The high action is communicated through minimal sound words and bold graphic art reminiscent of that in Donald Crews's transportation books. For more action and adventure from Mike Austin, check out Fire Engine No. 9!
