This humorous, rhythmic guide shows children what they might do if the animals escaped from the local zoo. Questions such as What would be done if a monkey jumps onto your school bus? What happens if a hippo shows up for breakfast? and What if an elephant wants to run the bases at a ball game? are all posed to readers. The colorful, kid-friendly art—even the alligator fails to look scary—will further engage the children.

Praise For If a Monkey Jumps onto Your School Bus

"Cochran's jaunty rhymes contribute to the spirit of fun and move the book along at a romping pace. Morris' art is vivacious, colorful and very child-friendly. The rhyming is fun to read aloud and the illustrations will project well to a group."  —Tasha Saecker,

"A joyful mix of text and illustration. The core idea for this narrative is not new, but the presentation will tickle listeners. Not only are the text limericks funny, but the illustrations with humor, expression, and activity take kids on a fun journey. A thoroughly enjoyable book. Highly recommended."  —Juvenile Book Review
