Booklist Review

Gr. 2^-4. Ms. Frizzle's school has a new assistant principal, and he's in for the ride of his life when he hops on board the Magic School Bus to deliver a message to Ms. Frizzle. The class warns him not to touch the little green switch on the dashboard, but it is too late. The next thing they know, the bus is as small as a speck of dust, and a stiff breeze blows it into the eye of an unsuspecting police officer. The bus also travels through the ear of a little boy, the nose of a dog, and even Ms. Frizzle's mouth. Along the margins are snippets of information in the form of Frizzle Facts and excerpts from kids' school reports. Degen's clever illustrations are both humorous and informative, acting as excellent visual aids for little learners. This innovative series continues to educate youngsters in fun and creative ways. --Lauren Peterson


School Library Journal Review

Gr 2-5‘When Ms. Frizzle drives away from school before receiving an important message, Mr. Wilde, the new assistant principal, hops behind the wheel of the Magic School Bus to catch her. The class jumps aboard, too, knowing full well that only the Friz can handle the bus. When Mr. Wilde flips a mysterious switch, the vehicle shrinks and lands in a police officer's eye, then a child's ear, a dog's nose, and, finally, Ms. Frizzle's mouth as she eats pizza with her mother ("We'd been chewed out by teachers before, but this was ridiculous"). The format is comfortably familiar with text boxes and dialogue balloons complementing the story. Degen's illustrations are just as exciting and exacting as usual. Another fun, fact-filled adventure in the series.‘Christine A. Moesch, Buffalo & Erie County Public Library, NY (c) Copyright 2010.
