Publishers Weekly, 2007-01-01 Some old favorites return to the shelves. Donald Barthelme's National Book Award-winner is back in print, the paper-over-board The Slightly Irregular Fire Engine: Or the Hithering Thithering Djinn, first published in 1971. It all begins one morning in 1887 when young Mathilda goes "hooping" (as in Hula-hooping). She hopes to discover a red fire engine outside, but finds a "mysterious Chinese house, only six feet high" instead. But what lies inside does not disappoint.
