Brassy the Fire Engine serves his town well, putting out fire after fire. But as the years pass and the town turns into a city, bigger and newer fire engines take over. But one day, an emergency arises and only Brassy is able to come to the rescue. Brassy is an appealing character in the tradition of Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel and The Little Engine That Could. This is a charming and classic picture book about an underdog who saves the day.
