Synopsis

If you thought that the only thing Ms. Frizzle taught was science, you were wrong! In the first book in the Ms. Frizzle¹s Adventures line, she goes on vacation, takes control of a tour group, and takes readers back to ancient Egypt. With Ms. Frizzle as their guide, young readers will be eager to discover the enchanting world of ancient Egypt. Joanna Cole and Bruce Degen, the duo behind the Magic School Bus, are known for making information accessible. Degen¹s boldly colored, humorous illustrations have once again made learning easy and fun.
