Publication Date:2001-3
Author Name:Roddie, Shen


The bus is late, the lines are long, and all the animals are waiting, some more patiently than others. 
When the bus finally arrives, each animal is told "Please don't chat to the bus driver." But no animal can resist just a few words.
Soon the bus driver is so busy listening that things are going all wrong.
When the battered, very late bus eventually comes to a grinding halt, all the animals disembark and wait for the next bus.
When it arrives, they are given the same instructions.
And guess what they do? Packed with exuberantly colorful illustrations, this is a story sure to tickle the funny bone.

  •     I read this book at the nursery where I work with 3 & 4 year olds, & it always goes down well. The repetitive text means the children can join in.The animals are told that they can go on the bus as long as they don't chat to the bus driver. But they did! The children find the consequences of the chatting funny. It's great to read to the children - a story you can get into and make humourous just by how you say the words!
