Nee Naw - The Little Fire Engine

Written by Deano Yipadee and Illustrated by Paul Beavis

Published by Scholastic NZ 2017

Written by Deano Yipadee, aka Mr Yipadee, this sing-along picture book was the immediate follow-up to the best selling  Jingle Bells, Rudolph Smells.  Saving the day is Nee Naw the Little Fire Engine who, according to the big fire engines, was too small to help. One of the interesting things to come out of the illustration process was the sub-story development of the various fire crews and how they worked together to help Nee Naw save Granny from the fire.
