About the Author:

Kersten Hamilton is also the author of Red Truck and Firefighters to the Rescue. She lives in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

R. W. Alley is the illustrator of nearly one hundred books for children, including Tiger Can't Sleep. He lives with his family in Barrington, Rhode Island

From Booklist:

Decidedly less flat-footed than most introductions to the police, this picture book uses a bit of story to show what officers do and amiable artwork to make them seem more approachable. Four people arrive at the police station one morning, change into their uniforms, and get to work. When a broken traffic light is reported, Sergeant Santole dispatches Officer Mike. A lost child who uses a police call box is rescued by Officer Jan, while Officer Carl apprehends two robbers fleeing—on foot! The cheerful, rhyming text concludes: “Situation? Under control! / ‘When people need help, we rock and roll!’” Alley’s colorful illustrations will engage children with intriguing details of life in this bustling town. The use of animated facial expressions and body language even for peripheral characters contributes to the sense that this town is full of stories—stories with happy endings for almost everyone. A nice read-aloud pick for community-helper units. Preschool-Grade 1. --Carolyn Phelan
