Book Description

The bus is late, the queues are long, all the animals are waiting, some more patiently than others. When the bus arrives each animal is told in turn, 'Please don't chat to the Bus Driver'. But no animal can resist just a few words. Soon the bus driver is so busy listening that his bus is later than before, it goes the wrong way, it drives round and round the round-about and even hits a bush. When the battered, late bus eventually collapses, all the animals disembark and wait for the next bus. When it arrives they are told again - 'Please don't chat to the Bus Driver'. Guess what they do?

Amazon Review
When all the noisy, naughty animals are told "Don't chat to the bus driver" they set off with good enough intentions ... but talking to the bus driver is just too tempting and once they've broken the rule once, chaos ensues...

Don't Chat to the Bus Driver is a superbly amusing story featuring quirky, bold illustrations of familiar animals in a fantastical story that is sure to become a firm favourite with children. But adults had better watch out too ... one look at this brilliant picture book, and before you know it you'll be as hooked as the kids are. (Age 2 and over) --Susan Harrison --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
