"The bridge is up!
The bus can't go.
So everyone has to wait."
First the bus, then the car, then the bike -- so begins the long line of different vehicles waiting to cross the bridge. What a traffic jam! And when the bridge finally does comes down . . . nobody has to wait!
Babs Bell's simple text and Rob Hefferan's joyous illustrations make this trip a fun, worthwhile read.
