A jaunty spin on the song "The Wheels on the Bus," this delightfully silly sing-along, read-aloud picture book is sure to amuse youngsters and animal aficionados alike. Seals, of course, do not go round and round like their predecessors the wheels. They go "errp errp errp." The tiger on the bus goes "roar roar roar," and the geese go "honk honk honk." When the many rabbits on the bus go "up and down," complete mayhem erupts, as, by this time, the bus is filled with seals, rabbits, geese, and a tiger. What? Room for a monkey and vipers, too? Sheep, and even skunks? In the end, the people on the bus--crowded by the motley menagerie--go "help help help!" G. Brian Karas, illustrator of more than 50 children's books (Cinder-Elly, Good Knight), infuses winsome charm into his simple compositions, peppered with cut-up newspaper bits and salted with hilarity. A read-aloud must-have! (Baby to preschool) -- Karin Snelson
