BUY – The Hundred Decker Bus
When the unsuspecting morning travellers board their city bus, no one is prepared for the impromptu adventure that unfolds. The driver, woken from his boring routine by a passing hot air balloon, decides to take a new route down a little road that he had never noticed before.
Before long everyone is excited about going ‘Anywhere’ and new passengers eagerly climb aboard until the bus is crammed full of happy people with no idea where they are going.
Indeed the journey didn’t stop when they reached the sea, instead they drove onto a ferry!
The sailors were inspired and wanted to come too, but the bus was full. With care and ingenuity they build a new level for the bus and in the morning a triple-decker bus rolled onto the shore.
Through towns, villages and even different countries the bus drove on, collecting more decks and more passengers. Fantastical, fanciful and fascinating. Children will be glued to this fabulous book, discovering in the detail all kinds of people and madcap situations.
A sitar player sits on a slate roof, children swim deep in the upper deck pool, caravans and windmills are stacked to the sky and everyone celebrates at the night long party when they reach 100 decks!
Clunk, Clunk…faces of all shapes sizes and races peer downward as the smoking engine brings the bus to a halt. In the middle of a desert they all clambered off.
An epic three page fold out shows the Hundred Decker Bus teetering high in all its glory.
But because it is a magnificent adventure a truly extraordinary solution is found!
Beautiful and uplifting!
