The Fire Truck Who Got Lost


The Fire Truck Who Got Lost is a wonderful story for children who will meet little Barnabus and the older fire trucks who care for him - Wheelie Dan, Agua, Hogwash, Turpentine and, of course, the Big Dalmatian. 

Little Barnabus gets lost in the big city and has to find his way back to the fire station. It's a story about getting lost somewhere big and imposing and finding a solution by being smart. 

What started as a simple story about the importance of family and perseverance has come to life through Amber De Joya's beautiful artwork. Your children will love the story and grow to love Barnabus.


About The Artist
