About the Book

For fans of Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site and Steam Train, Dream Train comes the perfect noisy addition to this hilarious read-aloud series from the popular creators of I Stink!, and I'm Dirty!—now a streaming animated series!

I'm Brave! is the most irresistible addition yet to Kate and Jim McMullan's hilarious read-aloud series: a fire truck.

He's a big red engine
With a siren,
A horn,
A tank full of water,
And a whole lotta hose!

He's a good-lookin' fire truck,
And he's brave, too.
When the alarm sounds
He's gotta drive through
Smoke and heat
Straight to a blazing fire!

Honk! Honk!
