Fireman Small is having trouble sleeping—again. Plinkety-plop, a raindrop falls— SPLAT!—on the nose of Fireman Small.
A leaky ceiling forces him to leave the station and check in at the Pink Hotel.
Fireman Small won’t get a restful night’s sleep just yet though . . . at first it’s the noisy hotel guests preparing for a night on the town that keep him awake, but then it’s the fire down below that gets Fireman Small out of bed and to the rescue!

Review: Fireman Small - Fire Down Below! (Fireman Small)

User Review  - Kristine Pratt - Goodreads

Very strange little story about a fireman who can't sleep and goes to a hotel for the night. The rhyme scheme is what bumped this up to 3 stars, otherwise I felt the story was a little strange. Read full review
