"Oozing confidence and energy, a big-eyed, grinning school bus describes his morning route, informing listeners that it “takes BRAINS to do my job—drive you to SCHOOL and keep you SAFE!” ... A perfect back-to-school storytime option, and a fun way to prepare children who are nervous about taking the school bus for the first time."

Mahnaz Dar, School Library Journal

"The latest of the McMullans’ tough-things-that-go books stars the school bus. “Who am I? SMARTER than a ROCKET SCIENTIST, MORE POWERFUL than a MONSTER TRUCK, able to HALT TRAFFIC with the FLICK of a SWITCH.” Watercolor illustrations use loose lines and shapes for the bus and other vehicles, making them seem as human as the passengers, who are thoughtfully differentiated. Like other vehicles in the series, the bus is proud of its job and accomplishments and is more than happy to show off for an audience."

Julie Roach. The Horn Book
