A completely average Pete the Cat book. Which is to say, it is OK, but never shows any of the personality that its character design suggests. There are many many better books about fire fighters out there for children.

Also, it might lead very small children to think that firefighters might invite them along to fight a real fire, and that it would be a fun little adventure rather than a terrifying battle.

I know Pete is awesome, but this is just getting silly. Pete goes on a field trip to the fire station and gets to go and actually fight the fire. Just no.

I just don't "get" Pete the Cat books but my students enjoy them. This one starts off with a class trip to a fire station and I was really enjoying it!! The reader hears about the children sliding down the pole, trying on the gear, and exploring the firetruck; these are all things I've witnessed children getting to experience while visiting a fire station. Then the book takes a turn and becomes make-believe; Pete goes on a dangerous fire call with the firefighters where he puts out the flames ...more

The book "Pete the Cat: Firefighter Pete" by James Dean is another tale in the popular "Pete the Cat" series. This story follows Pete as he meets firefighters and spends the day at the local fire station. He gets to try on fire gear, use the water hose, and slide down the fire pole. Young readers will love this fun day at the fire station, as they learn about a popular community helper. James Dean's bold and engaging illustrations, along with engaging use of onomatopoeia, keep the reader ...more

Typical Pete the Cat artwork. I liked the beginning where Pete's class took a field trip to the fire station and got to crawl around the truck and try out the equipment and learn all about it. I was disappointed, however, in the end when the fire station gets a call and they take Pete along with them and let him help fight the fire. Obviously, this would never happen and I feel like it gives kids the wrong impression. Firefighting takes more than an afternoon of training and I felt like the ...more
Pete the Cat and his classmates take a field trip to the local firehouse. They all learn about what firefighters do, and the equipment they use. Suddenly the fire alarm sounds, and Pete the Cat finds himself assisting the firefighters in putting out the fire, and helps save Grumpy Frog from the burning building.
Pete the Cat goes on a field trip to the firehouse. Somehow this morphs into Pete actually becoming a firefighter. I feel like that escalated quickly, but Ozman did not. Thinking of seeing if the firefighters I know will give him his own tour of the firehouse, since he enjoyed this book!

My son and I enjoyed this book! I prefer the Pete the Cat books without songs in them and liked this one. My son loves Pete the Cat and firefighters/fire trucks, so this was the perfect combo! There's a ton of firefighter books out there, and this one may not be the best, but it's good!

Pretty good book. It details a firefighter’s life. Pete participates while on a school field trip. Pete fans will enjoy it. Recommended Grades 1-3.

Cute book

Another great Pete the cat book. The kids enjoyed it a lot, especially my daughter who aspires to be a firefighter one day.
Pete goes on a school trip to the fire station and then goes out on a fire call.

A well told story about a visit to the firehouse (or as we say in our small town, the firebarn!).

The artwork is in typical James Dean/Pete the Cat rendering.
