Ceccoli's beautiful, lyrical illustrations, in acrylics and pastels, give a mythic quality to Slater's tale of firefighting . Endearingly, Slater captures a young child's view of the world and a very different role for firefighters than usually seen by this audience.

Ceccoli's beautiful, lyrical illustrations, in acrylics and pastels, give a mythic quality to Slater's tale of firefighting derring-do, told by a little girl snugly asleep in her bed and imagining where the sirens are going. The fire truck pulls up to a castle, set on fire by a dragon who hastily blew on his potatoes to cool them. Next, they go to Mexico to help a lady who ignited a house fire by eating a very hot pepper. Then, it's on to a baby boy who bounced so high on his bed he flew out the window.

The sweet, ethereal and terrifying creatures of Nicoletta Ceccoli are back to enchant us, this time by telling us a love story. Her girls with icy and intense faces and porcelain skin are still immersed in surrealist settings, surrounded by sweets and toys, most of which look old style and vaguely disquieting. In their suspended world in pastel tones, they give a choral voice to the lines of a delicate and moving poem. To win the princesse love, the prince doesn’t have to defeat evil warriors, dragons or other monsters – he has to overcome her doubts, learn to listen to her, slowly taking off.

This is amazing. I cannot believe I never heard of this book before!

It's clearly a bedtime story, though you can read it at any time. The focus of the book isn't on firefighters in the typical way, it's on a little girl making up bedtime stories about where the firefighters near her go every night.

The illustrations, first off, are gorgeous. I would have wanted this book for the pictures alone. At one point, the girl says that the firefighters are never scared, and are as strong as tigers, and you can see how she turns the stripes on their uniforms into tiger stripes to finish the metaphor.

The story, though - wow. The author has managed to pretty much capture a kid's storytelling sense. The firefighters, in her mind, put out fires from a woman eating peppers in Mexico, or from a dragon trying to cool off his food in a castle. At one point, the firefighters (she pictures them as a diverse group, with two men and two women, a nice touch) save a boy who jumps all the way to Mars. "You can't go to Mars like that, you need a spacesuit and your mittens!"

It's such a simple story, but beautifully told and illustrated. You're missing out if you don't immediately run and purchase this for your library. Don't have kids? Get it for yourself! Get it for a local school! Just get it.

My kids have loved this book for years so instead of constantly checking it out from the library we decided to get our own copy. I recommend it to anyone who enjoys using their imagination

Firefighters in the Dark is a whimsical, lyrical little story about a girl who hears the fire sirens go off, and where she imagines they go.

I got this book because the author also wrote The Sea Serpent and Me, one of our daughter's favorites. Firefighters in the Dark has also become a favorite.

Just beautiful and sweet.

I really like this book. It shows the imagination of a small child, coming up with different stories about what firefighters do when they are out on a call. My son loves this book.

One of the kids' favorites!

Nice cuddly illustrations, relaxing faces, and lots of firefighters and engines. Good for boys or girls as a bedtime story. Very light reading, so it can be chosen time and again without getting tiring.

I have loved this book since it first came out, and often buy copies for friends of mine who have small children. Especially when they are Firemen!

I love how this book is centered around a girl firefighter. The artwork is beautiful and the story is whimsical and inspiring. A perfect gift for a little girl. I got this for my firefighter girlfriends daughter.
