Gus, The Dinosaur Bus

Gus the Dinosaur Bus Book Cover Gus, the pea-green supersaurus takes children to school as if he is a bus.  No one misses school. Bus stops aren’t necessary.  And Gus is fuel efficient.  But there are problems.  He leaves dino-sized potholes, gets tangled in telephone lines, and knocks down traffic lights.  Everyone is sad when the principal has to pull Gus off the road, until Gus becomes the school’s new playground, complete with a swing and slide. Watercolor and pencil drawings are wacky and resemble child-created, crayon-colored artwork. mjw
