Summary
Can a Fire Truck and a Dragon be friends? Find out in this new companion to the household favorite Shark vs. Train !

It's the wackiest rivalry ever, when the fire-breathing ruler of the skies and the fearless fire truck go head to head in an epic battle of fire vs water! Who will win?

But wait, is it actually a competition?

Their rivalry takes unexpected turns as these two unlikely friends face off at a campfire, a birthday party, and more with unexpected results. Who will you root for?
With playful illustrations and charming text, Fire Truck vs Dragon gives readers an unexpected twist on a would-be rivalry, turned friendship.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Barton's energetic day-in-the-life story of an unlikely pair of friends, Fire Truck and Dragon, teaches young readers quite literally to look beyond a book's cover. While the title and jacket imply a battle between the two powerhouses, the amicable story is anything but that. Although the children in the book wish to see an epic fight go down, Fire Truck and Dragon defy stereotypes and proudly flaunt their friendship, reminding onlookers that not only do they get along swimmingly but they also have many hidden talents that shouldn't be overlooked: they enjoy cooking together, attending and participating in social functions, fostering creative hobbies, and, most important, sharing time with each other and the neighborhood kids. McCloskey's vibrant illustrations implement a striking primary-color palette with expressive characters and fun, roughshod line work to match the liveliness of the plot. This book teaches readers to appreciate differences, value unlikely and unexpected friendships, and be proud of themselves and their loved ones for all their successes.--Stephanie Cohen Copyright 2019 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "This time, the joke is on readers: unlike the rivals in Shark vs. Train, Fire Truck and Dragon are besties ("We get along great!" says Fire Truck. "Why wouldn't we?"). Each time there's a possible confrontation involving Dragon's incendiary talents and Fire Truck's capacity to extinguish them, the result is comically companionable. Looking forward to what will happen when the two show up at the same cookout or barbecue? Dragon proudly brings homemade free-range potato salad, and a beaming Fire Truck provides "my famous firehouse beans." "Is there something more they want to see from us? Something in particular?" Dragon innocently asks after yet another potential showdown ends on a benevolent note. They finally agree to "Facing off!!" ("Who will win?" says Dragon tantalizingly), which results in a staring contest. "I thought that... would be a crowd-pleaser," says Dragon, puzzled. Frustrated expectations have seldom been so funny; Barton's misdirections are beautifully timed, and McCloskey's digitally enhanced pencil-and-watercolor drawings are bright and exuberant. And yes, fire is finally breathed and water is spurted: that's how these two multifaceted pals say goodbye. Ages 4--8. Author's agent: Erin Murphy, Erin Murphy Literary Agency. Illustrator's agent: Erica Rand Silverman, Stimola Literary Studio. (Mar.)"
