My Review
Rusty Goes to Water World is a new adventure involving Rusty the Fire Truck, and it's also a continuation of the first book (although young readers don't need to have read the first one to enjoy this one). 
This story follows Rusty and the children living in Someport-by-the-Sea as they go on a trip to Water World for their end of year celebration. Everyone is so excited to spend the day at the water park, having fun and riding rides. But then, Water World has to close down. The children are disappointed and upset. Can Rusty save the day once again?
This is a cute story. I really liked the first book, and it was nice to see this one continue on with Rusty. It's a story that young readers will love, especially if they read the first book. The illustrations are lovely and will really bring the story to life. And the message/lesson in this one is: thinking outside the box sometimes can be a good thing when it comes to solving problems. Don't underestimate the abilities and talents of someone you may least expect would be able to solve said problem. 
A delightful children's book that will appeal to readers of all ages.
5 stars!

Book TitleRusty the Forgotten Fire Engine (The Adventures of Rusty the Forgotten Fire Engine) by Joe Fisher
Category:  Children's Fiction (Ages 4-8), 32 pages

Release date:   May 2017

Book Description:

When the Mayor Himself decides the town of Someport-by-the-Sea needs a new fire engine the Fire Chief picks a shiny, bright red one that has all the latest tools needed to put out fires. The new fire engine becomes the joy of the children in town and the pride of the fireman and townspeople alike.

But after many years the fire engine becomes old and worn until everyone begins to laugh and call it Rusty. Sad and forlorn Rusty is ignored and forgotten. Then during the 4th of July parade in a summer like no other Rusty saves the day in a most surprising and unusual way.

Rusty the Forgotten Fire Engine tells the story of a fire engine and the fireman and boy who love him. It is a lighthearted and multi-layered story, richly told, that will appeal to children and adults alike.

Whimsical illustrations create an air of fantasy, drawing children into Rusty’s world while stimulating their imaginations as they follow Rusty’s journey from hero to outcast and back again.

The surprise ending brings the tale to a heart-warming and satisfying conclusion that reveals all things have hidden value that is waiting to be released. Rusty the Forgotten Fire Engine is a classic story of love, loss, transformation and redemption.
