Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
An eccentric teacher takes her class on an adventure through the city waterworks and teaches science painlessly. Ages 6-9. (March)
School Library Journal
Gr 2-4 A remarkable meshing of text and illustration makes this an outstanding, lively treatment of a subject for which there is very little written for this age group. Ms. Frizzle has assigned her class a month-long investigation of how their city gets its water supply, to be followed by a field trip to the waterworks. With ``The Friz'' as driver, the children encounter surprise after surprise, as they are magically clad in scuba gear while in a tunnel, then slowly ascend to a cloud, where each child disembarks; falls as a drop of water into a mountain stream; flows into a reservoir; and bounces through the purification system, pipes, and water mains under the city streets. The trip ends with all arriving, drop by drop, in the girls' bathroom in their school as a seventh grader turns on the water faucet. A subsequent classroom mural is drawn of their field trip with the interesting facts of water posted above. Not such a bad trip after all! Liveliness and humor combine to provide valuable information in a simple, explicit text, totally complemented by cheery cartoon-like illustrations. A finishing flourish are the two pages of humorous and lighthearted notes (for SERIOUS students only) at the text's end. This book will rarely sit on the shelf.
