Summary

Summary

It's beach day, and the whole class is excited. Everyone except Arnold and Keesha, that is. They forgot their report on two beach things that go together. All Arnold and Keesha have is a tunafish sandwich and some smelly green pond scum. What could those two things possibly have in common? "The best way to learn about something is to jump right in," Ms. Frizzle announces. A second later the bus dives right into the ocean! Come on an underwater adventure and learn about food chains.


Author Notes

Joanna Cole was born in Newark, New Jersey on August 11, 1944. She attended the University of Massachusetts, Indiana University, and City College of New York where she earned a degree in Psychology.

Ms. Cole has worked as an elementary school teacher, a librarian, and a children's book editor. As a child, she loved science and explaining things and this is why she started writing children's books. She writes fiction and non-fiction titles. Her most well-known series are the Magic School Bus and the "Body."

Cole's books have received a number of honors. A Horse's Body and A Snake's Body were both named Outstanding Science Trade Books for children by the joint committee of the National Science Teachers Association and the Children's Book Council. In 1982, A Snake's Body was named a Children's Choice Book by the joint committee of the International Reading Association and the Children's Book Council. Both A Cat's Body and A Bird's Body were Junior Literary Guild selections. In 1991, she was awarded the Washington Post/Children's Book Guild Nonfiction award.
