Description of this Book

Leon and his friend Susan live in New Auckland, an isolated village on the northwest coast of British Columbia. One day, the village receives an unexpected gift from the government a fire truck. The problem is that mountains surround the village. There are no roads, no cars, and no fire hydrants. The man who comes to build the fire station brings with him a practical joke that scares the wits out of Leon and Susan a real live wiggling thumb. Its a toss-up as to which object will leave a bigger impact on the villagers the first vehicle theyve ever seen or the bizarre appendage.
