Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Rosa Roberts
The premise of this picture book is good but falls short. The story involves Cheech, comedian turned children's author, in the protagonist role of school bus driver. To his surprise, the children ask to borrow his school bus and convert it into a sail boat over the weekend in order to participate in a sail boat race. As predicted, the children win the sail boat race, and everyone is happy at the end of the story. The unraveling of events is inadequate and will leave young readers confused as to why the school bus was used in the first place. The fish become too friendly along the race, and the bus stop sign is instrumental in winning. The illustrations try to appeal to children's interest, with large cartoon-like bobble head characters; however, the book's pictures fail to captivate its audience due to the large, exaggerated heads and smaller body proportions. Despite the numerous children's books authored by comedians and actors, this picture book is not a worthwhile purchase. Reviewer: Rosa Roberts
School Library Journal

K-Gr 2- Like Cheech the School Bus Driver (HarperCollins, 2007), this self-indulgent story suffers from forced humor, a predictable plot, and Ramírez's clichéd caricatures. It's as if the Magic School Bus were forced to land on Nickelodeon's "Dora the Explorer" set and take on its formulaic design conventions, while deleting all substance. Picture perpetually amazed eyes widening above ever-rosy cheeks in bodies perched against pixilated backgrounds. This time, the Cheecharrones want to compete in a boat race, their only hope being the conversion of Cheech's vehicle into a "sailbus." Little of note happens during the race or at the climax. For a genuinely entertaining ride, stick with the exploits of Ms. Frizzle in Joanna Cole and Bruce Degen's still-popular series (Scholastic).-Wendy Lukehart, Washington DC Public Library

Kirkus Reviews
Trite and self-serving as it was, comedian Marin's first literary effort for young readers, Cheech the School Bus Driver (2007), at least carried a worthy Lesson; this sequel promotes winning through cheating. When his young passengers convert his school bus into a motorboat in order to race the (unmotorized) sailboat of classmate Vanessa, he eagerly joins in the fun. A sloshy ride and many encounters with sea life later, Cheech sees that the competitors are about to pull into the lead, and so snaps out the bus's retractable "STOP" sign-which, of course, prevents Vanessa and crew from passing. Vanessa graciously concedes: "When I grow up, I want to be a bus driver just so I can have one of those stop signs. Then I'll win all the races!" Putting the celebrity narrator, mouth agape beneath a bushy mustache, at the visual center of most scenes, Ram'rez gives his cartoon figures oversized heads and eyes, along with a drastically limited range of expressions. The winning blurb photo's not going to be enough to sell this. (Picture book. 6-8)
