Flat Stanley and the Fire Station Blue Banana by Jeff Brown

A thrilling, lights-flashing, siren-whirring illustrated book about everyone's favourite flat boy, Flat Stanley, for Egmont's Blue Banana series. Stanley and his brother Arthur have won a trip to visit the local fire station! But it's not quite as exciting as they'd hoped. Where is the sliding down the pole? Where are the sirens and flashing lights? Then, all of a sudden, there's a Code Nine call, and the whole Lambchop family are whizzing off to the rescue in a fire engine. Based on the original character created by Jeff Brown, Blue bananas are illustrated books for NC Level 2 readers learning to tackle longer prose for the first time with the support of extensive illustrations and speech bubbles. They are carefully designed with education in mind, supporting children's understanding of vocabulary and punctuation. Blue Bananas explores the feelings and emotions of characters in a clear fashion.
