If you like stories that take everyday events and turn them into something surprising, then this book by Vincent Scala is one you will enjoy. Nearly everyone has ridden a bus, but not a bus like this. This bus goes to the mountains, the zoo, the forest, even the moon. The passengers are not ordinary either. There is an abominable snowman, a talking goldfish, a pair of dodos and many other amazing creatures. But everyone makes it back home safely in time for dinner.
This could be used at the start of an art project where each person imagines the strangest person/creature/animal that would ever be seen on a bus, then imagines the craziest place that could possibly be their destination. Put them together, and "VOILA!" you would have a class book about a zany bus ride.
I read an e-book provided by the publisher through NetGalley.
