The Monster on the Bus



"Now I know why Mom made me ride my bike to school. I missed so much!" —Stephen Colbert, host of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert

A spooky and hilarious spin on a classic children’s song, from the author of Chapter Two is Missing and the illustrator of The Panda Problem


It’s the first day of school, and for Cassius and Angelique, that means their first ride on the school bus. The school bus can be a little intimidating for first-time riders! Will you have a friend to sit next to? Will the driver be nice? . . . and in the case of this bus ride, will that monster eat your backpack?

As the wheels go round and round, the bus gets more and more off course. Is that. . .a T. Rex sitting in the back? And doesn’t that look like a wizard sitting in the front? Cassius and Angelique must outsmart a wild cast of characters if they want to make it to school on time!
