Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Judy Katsh
The New York Times Book Review calls The Magic School Bus ."..the freshest, most amusing approach to science for children and it's the truth!" The humor comes both from the hair-raising situations in which Ms. Frizzle and her well-traveled students find themselves and from the comfortable familiarity many readers now have with the eccentricities of each member of the crew. The science comes from clear, never condescending, writing both in the main text (which stands on its own and is plenty-enriching for youngest readers) and in the class reports featured as sidebars on each page. The sly jokes, the informative text, and the wild illustrations all work together to make a learning package that will be fun to open again and again.
Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
There are no surprises here for the Magic School Bus fans, just lots more good scientific information about one of nature's greatest forces. The Friz takes the kids through a hurricane on their field trip to a weather station. A kid-pleasing presentation by a talented duo.
School Library Journal
Gr 1-3-Another wild and wacky field trip for Ms. Frizzle and her intrepid students-this time into the eye of a hurricane. The magic school bus changes into a weather balloon and then into an airplane as the class experiences the hurricane and a spin-off tornado firsthand. As usual, Ms. Frizzle's wardrobe is as changeable as the weather. The familiar format features lots of weather information delivered via students' written reports and spoken comments (dialogue balloons). A subplot features the hapless Arnold, who becomes separated from the group with only Ms. Frizzle's talking radio for company. He survives several harrowing adventures before the magic school bus/plane picks him up. All ends well, the class celebrates with a party, and the Frizz has bees in her bonnet as she anticipates the next class project with a new outfit.-Eunice Weech, M.L. King Elementary School, Urbana, IL
