Description

This hilarious new version of the beloved children's song "The Wheels on the Bus" will have young readers errping and roaring and honking along.
"The seals on the bus go "errp, errp, errp"
All through the town."
Two children and their parents board a city bus on their way to a party. At the next stop, who should get on but a group of seals, who holler "errp, errp, errp" at the top of their lungs. Each time the bus stops a new kind of animal joins the passengers and adds to the din, to the children's delight and the parents' annoyance. But when several hissing skunks want to come aboard, even the children cry "help! help! help!"

        PreS-Gr 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

        "The seals on the bus go / errp, errp, errp, / All around the town." The animals have taken over a favorite preschool song in this wild bus ride. The mayhem rises as a different animal boards at each stop--geese, monkeys, rabbits, and a scowling though hardly fearsome tiger driver. The match-up of text and art is completely successful, with the silly but symmetrical variant of the song playing it straight to Karas's haywire illustrations. Don't miss the ride.
