Book Description:

When the Mayor Himself decides the town of Someport-by-the-Sea needs a new fire engine the Fire Chief picks a shiny, bright red one that has all the latest tools needed to put out fires. The new fire engine becomes the joy of the children in town and the pride of the fireman and townspeople alike.

But after many years the fire engine becomes old and worn until everyone begins to laugh and call it Rusty. Sad and forlorn Rusty is ignored and forgotten. Then during the 4th of July parade in a summer like no other Rusty saves the day in a most surprising and unusual way.

Rusty the Forgotten Fire Engine tells the story of a fire engine and the fireman and boy who love him. It is a lighthearted and multi-layered story, richly told, that will appeal to children and adults alike.

Whimsical illustrations create an air of fantasy, drawing children into Rusty’s world while stimulating their imaginations as they follow Rusty’s journey from hero to outcast and back again.

The surprise ending brings the tale to a heart-warming and satisfying conclusion that reveals all things have hidden value that is waiting to be released. Rusty the Forgotten Fire Engine is a classic story of love, loss, transformation and redemption. 


Rusty the Forgotten Fire Engine is the first in this series and I loved it. This is a fun story about a fire truck that was once the pride of the town. Eventually, like all things, ages. Leaving Rusty no longer as new and shiny as he once was and becomes the talk of the town for aging and wearing down. 

This book teaches that just because something is old that doesn’t make it obsolete. In fact, there may just be value in them. I love the message of this story and the rhymes within. The illustrations are animated and gorgeous! They drew my attention. The use of a loveable firetruck to teach important life lessons such as aging, empathy, friendship, respect, and value gave me all the feels. I look forward to reading the next book in this series.

I received an advance review copy for free and am leaving this review voluntarily. Thank you Joe Fisher and iRead Book Tours. I'm excited to be a part of this tour.
