The perfect story for a child about to go on the school bus for the first time-a hilarious romp on the bus-a-saurus, a cross between a bus and a dinosaur. In the slightly alternate universe that is the suburban town, things are just a little more zany than reality-or are they? Perfect for the first day, or for any day when the bus ride to school might need a little jazzing up!

Cheerfully bizarre illustrations and energetic but inconsistent rhymes tell of the monster “bus-a-saurus” as he proceeds around town picking up schoolchildren.
