ISBN-13: 9781588245793 Review A jaunty spin on the song "The Wheels on the Bus," this delightfully silly sing-along, read-aloud picture book is sure to amuse youngsters and animal aficionados alike. Seals, of course, do not go round and round like their predecessors the wheels. They go "errp errp errp." The tiger on the bus goes "roar roar roar," and the geese go "honk honk honk." When the many rabbits on the bus go "up and down," complete mayhem erupts, as, by this time, the bus is filled with seals, rabbits, geese, and a tiger. What? Room for a monkey and vipers, too? Sheep, and even skunks? In the end, the people on the bus--crowded by the motley menagerie--go "help help help!" G. Brian Karas, illustrator of more than 50 children's books (, ), infuses winsome charm into his simple compositions, peppered with cut-up newspaper bits and salted with hilarity. A read-aloud must-have! (Baby to preschool) -- Karin Snelson From School Library Journal PreSchool-Grade 2-In this send-up of the traditional activity song, an unsuspecting family of four is joined by seven successive sets of animals (seals, geese, rabbits, monkeys, vipers, sheep, and skunks) on their bus ride to a local fair. So instead of swishing with the wipers or beeping with the horn, children "hiss" with the vipers and "honk" with the geese, and the bus driver, who happens to be a tiger, goes "ROAR, ROAR, ROAR." Karas's mixed-media cartoon collages wonderfully convey Hort's hyperbole. Kids will love adding these zoological lyrics to the ever-expanding onomatopoeia of "The Wheels on the Bus."-John Sigwald, Unger Memorial Library, Plainview, TX Copyright 2000 Reed Business Information, Inc.
