The squeals on the bus

Michael Dahl

Book - 2018

Twelve-year-old Jordan and his friend Evan are picked up by a different school bus, driven by a shadowy figure, a bus where all the other children are bizarrely deformed, except for one girl at the back, and when the children see their reflections in the dirty windows they start to scream--but what will happen when they get off the bus at school?

Review by School Library Journal Review

Gr 3-7-Riders take nightmarish journeys on the School Bus of Horrors in this new middle grade series from the author of the popular "Library of Doom" titles. Each book follows a different student in a new hair-raising situation, including a bus that keeps shrinking (Crush Hour), an unexpected detour to a graveyard (Dead End), and riders who have horns and lizard tongues that disappear once they get off the bus (The Squeals on the Bus). The series has a highly appealing layout, with bright, graphic illustrations on each page. The readable text features short sentences, and there are typically no more than six sentences per page. The back of each title includes a glossary, discussion questions, and writing prompts based on the text. VERDICT Written between a first and third grade reading level, these books, with enticing covers depicting ghouls, beasts, and other terrors, are sure to attract fans of horror and the supernatural. © Copyright 2019.
