About the Book
I love writing about animals because they are funny and unpredictable! I got the idea for Milo and the Fire Engine Parade when I heard a big fire truck racing down our street during a Fourth of July parade. I wondered what it might be like for a kid to be stuck at home and not able to go to the parade, and then see the truck roar right past his house!
