Elephant Joe, Brave Firefighter! by David Wojtowycz -- ADVISABLE

Wojtowycz, David Elephant Joe, Brave Firefighter! EARLY READER. Step Into Reading (Random House), 2015. $3.99. Content: G.

In this comic for young readers, it's Dragon's birthday. But the birthday surprise Elephant Joe has planned goes awry when the startled dragon flies into a tree -- and gets stuck there. Elephant Joe knows just what to do: turn into a firefighter to rescue Dragon. He'd better keep his costume close for the candle-blowing afterward, though, because as it turns out surprises aren't the only thing Dragons don't handle well.

This early reader is written in a very basic graphic novel format in order to engage children. The colors are vibrant, and there's plenty of action without any true peril.

EL (K-3) -- ADVISABLE. Reviewer: Caryn
