Several picture-book companions join the ranks this season. Dumpy and the Firefighters by Julie Andrews Edwards and Emma Walton Hamilton, illus. by Tony Walton, is the latest book starring the amiable dump truck. Dumpy has his work cut out for him, clearing the routes for Farmer Barnes' New Year's Day Open House. But when the general store catches fire, and the firefighters need help navigating the ice, Dumpy plays a special role. (Sept.)
