Praise For Gus, the Dinosaur Bus…
—School Library Journal
"The story's mild suspense is just right for the book's audience. . . And the kindly pea-green dino steals the show with his huge smile and even bigger heart."
—The Horn Book Magazine
"An especially charming addition to the genre."
—The New York Times Book Review
"Liu's evocative present-tense text in this Taiwanese import is rich with scene-setting detail yet also simple and confiding in its descriptions, hitting all those details that make this a perfect child-sized dinosaur fantasy."
—Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
