Few words are needed in this inventive and fun transportation adventure!

"Bus! Stop!" a boy yells, as his bus pulls away one early morning. He must wait for the next bus. But the next one does NOT look like his bus at all. And neither does the next one, or the next. At first, the boy is annoyed. Then he is puzzled. Then intrigued. The other buses look much more interesting than his bus. Maybe he should try a different bus after all, and he's glad he does!

Here is a book with few words and delightful illustrations that shows very young children that trying something a little different can be a lot of fun.
