Lyhyt elämäkerta
Tibor Gergely (1900-1978) was an artist best known for his work in several popular children's books. Born in Budapest in 1900, he studied art briefly in Vienna before emigrating to the United States in 1939, where he settled in New York City. Largely a self-taught artist, he also contributed several covers of The New Yorker, mostly during the 1940s. Among the most popular children's books Gergely illustrated are The Happy Man and His Dump Truck, Busy Day Busy People, The Little Red Caboose, The Fire Engine Book, Tootle, and Scuffy the Tugboat. Many (70!) of his better known books were published by Little Golden Books. His best work is collected in "The Great Big Book of Bedtime Stories." Gergely died in 1978, in New York.

As of 2001, Tootle was the all-time third best-selling hardcover children's book in English, and Scuffy the Tugboat was the eighth all-time bestseller. Source: Amazon

Pretty dramatic story here, building on fire, little dog rescued, men chopping with axes and breaking windows to put out the fire. I will be interested to see how my grandson likes it when he is old enough to read it to. My husband says it was one of his favorites.

This is a great book to read with preschooler’s when doing a unit on community helpers. This book goes over what a fire fighter does to fight a fire. It shows them rushing to the truck and putting out the fire and rescuing a dog from the burning building.

We change it to "fire fighters" to update it, but our kid really does like this book.
