Description

Award-winning author Jennifer Armstrong makes history come alive through the heartwarming tale of a 19th-century horse who demonstrates to children the importance of responsibility and duty. Even when Magnus the horse is told his services to the Broadway Firehouse are no longer needed, he continues appearing at the scenes of fires. Luckily, for the townspeople and the firemen, Magnus turns up just when they need him the most. "This is a fine tribute to the four-legged 'smoke eaters' that bravely served their communities."-School Library Journal

Professional reviews

"In the early 1900s the horse-drawn pumpers of America's fire departments were replaced by "newfangled contraptions," motorized fire engines. Majestic and expectant, but newly retired, Magnus the fire horse watches his captain and firemen respond to the next bell in the new vehicle. Magnus responds also--over the fence and to the scene! Like John Henry, Magnus does not retire to old Captain Francher's farm without an impressive display of fortitude. Jim Jenner brings the distinctive voice of a seasoned storyteller. It's just right for evoking that period in America when the fire horse was an esteemed community member. A.R. (c) AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine"
