On a sweltering summer day in Brooklyn, firemen spray a group of bored city kids with cool water from their hoses. In the water-drenched moments that follow, the children make the most of this unexpected treat. Lawrence Ferlinghetti's poem comes alive with charming and exuberant woodcuts by David Frampton, creating an adventure that readers of all ages will enjoy.
David Frampton grew up in New York, USA. His childhood memories form the basis for the illustrations of this book. David's recent books for children include At Jerusalem's Gate by Nikki Grimes and The Song of Francis and the Animals, both published by Eerdmans.
