Book Review + Giveaway: Rusty Goes to Water World

Title: Rusty Goes to Water World | Author: Joe Fisher | Illustrator: Jaye Boswell | Genre: Picture Book | Publisher: Angler Publishing | Release Date: August 2021

Book Description: The townspeople of Someport-by-the-Sea want to honor Rusty for saving them during the “Summer Like No Other” so the Mayor Himself decides a park should be named in Rusty’s honor. But, finding the right place is not as easy as it sounds. Then when students at Sea Stone Elementary take Rusty on their end of year celebration at Water World things don’t go as planned.

Just as Mr. Spritz the Manager of Water World is about to close the park because of an equipment failure, Rusty, with the help of Fireman Jim and Mike the Deputy Fire Chief, once again saves the day and in the process finds a new home in a water park that bears his name.

My Thoughts: Rusty the Fire Engine is at it again! The town is so grateful that Rusty saved them in the Summer Like No Other, that they want to do something to commemorate it. But as time goes by, nothing is done, and it seems like everyone has forgotten Rusty again. But a clever group of students hasn’t forgotten him and asks if he can be part of their end of year celebrations. So, Rusty accompanies the class to a waterpark and when the pump breaks, saves the day again and finally finds a home where he will never be forgotten. This sweet story follows from Rusty’s original adventure with more fun and familiar characters. Carrying on with the theme of remembrance and appreciation, the story has a wonderfully satisfying conclusion that sees Rusty finally get the respect he deserves. The active illustrations brings the fun of a waterpark to life and the humour carries on from the first book seamlessly. Another delightful read and a wonderful book to read together as a family.
