Author Joanna Cole and illustrator Bruce Degen make learning a spirited joyride, delighting young audiences with their fantastic journeys to the eye of a hurricane, the bottom of the ocean, and the center of the earth, to name just a few. Author and illustrator have said they were each inspired by an important teacher in their classroom days - very much like Ms. Frizzle! There are now more than 58 million Magic School Bus books in print, in a variety of formats, plus a wildly successful animated television series. Called "a can't-miss team" by School Library Journal, Cole and Degen live in Florida and Connecticut, respectively.

Gr. 2^-3, younger for reading aloud. In a cheerily illustrated anthology, the compilers of Ready . . . Set . . . Read--and Laugh! (1995) and other popular collections bring together rhymes, riddles, stories, and a few picture-book excerpts about people and their dogs. There's a touching Rylant story featuring Henry and his huge pet, Mudge, and for a slightly older audience, there's a true adventure of Barry, the brave rescue dog who saves a girl buried in mountain snow. Other entries include a funny rebus tale, a double-page spread of interesting facts, and lots of jokes in words and pictures. A lighthearted anthology for reading aloud, this will also lead some kids to read for themselves. Hazel Rochman
