Praise For Ten Rules You Absolutely Must Not Break If You Want to Survive the School Bus

"Worthy of being shelved next to Jon Scieszka’s funniest."—Kirkus Reviews, starred review 

"Though his hair recalls Conan O'Brien, first-time school bus rider Kyle's anxiety-ridden narration is straight out of A Christmas Story."—Publishers Weekly

"The large, full-page acrylic illustrations constantly shift perspectives and points of view, adding energy, vivacity, and animation... Seasoned bus riders, and anyone who has been misguided by an older sibling’s advice, will certainly enjoy this outrageously humorous, well-told story."School Library Journal, starred review
