The Great Big Fire Engine Book, Tibor Gergely


Today's vintage children's book, The Great Big Fire Engine Book, was illustrated by Hungarian artist Tibor Gergely. Published in 1950, the big, bright and action packed illustrations must have been a huge hit with children back then.

  1. I bet this was a hit with kids when it was published! It's a hit with me now! I love the bold colors and dynamism of the illustrations. And, let's be frank, who doesn't harbor some positive fantasy about firefighters? Great book. Thanks!
