Here Comes the Bus!

by Carolyn Haywood

[From the dust jacket:] "After Jonathan moved to the country he had to take a bus to school. On the bus he met Melissa Molasses, whose attempts to be helpful ruined the lunch Jonathan's mother had fixed for him. Mr. Riley, the bus driver, was helpful too--he helped everybody. Without Mr. Riley the first grade would never have had two birthday cakes instead of one when they celebrated Jonathan's birthday. Jonathan and Melissa might also have remained stuck in a snow bank the rest of the winter. That was the day Mr. Riley sighed "What a morning!" to himself in heartfelt tones. Little did he realize he had an even worse one in store for him---the morning the children took their assorted pets to school for the Pet Show. Jonathan, like Eddie and Betsy, is always so well-meaning that the trouble he causes becomes all the funnier. Children who ride a school bus will find much that is familiar in this warm-hearted story. Those who don't ride one will wish they did."
