StoryMakers with Brian Biggs AT THE FIREHOUSE
Join Rocco and Brian Biggs, creator of Tinyville Town, for a chat about the eighth book in that series, AT THE FIREHOUSE, on this episode of StoryMakers. In order to make the book, Brian toured a real firehouse to find out what goes on behind the scenes when firefighters aren’t battling blazes. Watch and learn the ways a firehouse is like a home — well, a home that you might have to dash out of at any moment and rush to the scene of an emergency, anyway!
ABOUT the Book
In Tinyville Town: At the Firehouse, join Dexter and Firefighter Charlie on a guided tour of the Tinyville Town firehouse. See where the firefighters store their gear, where they eat and rest, and find out what happens when the alarm rings!
ABOUT Brian Biggs
Brian was born in Little Rock, Arkansas in 1968, and lived there until he was eleven years old. As a kid, Brian drew things, painted things, built things, and generally made stuff up all the time. This is a picture of Brian at around three years old, after having built a tall thing out of blocks.
