AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Old fire-engine Lil is still keen to fight fires, but these days she usually sits in the station while the smart modern engines do all the work. But one day there is an emergency at Brown’s Farm, and Lil is the only one who can help. Will she get there in time to save the farmhouse and all the people and animals?

'Fire Engine Lil addresses the serious topic of bush fires in a way that is just right for young children. '
