    Lexi was reading this story, to her sister, Victoria as I was driving them to their dentist appointment! Quite a few times, I could hear giggling and chuckling as Lexi read the story! I must admit, I enjoyed it, as much as they did! One day, a boy gets on the wrong bus! He meets very interesting characters, while traveling to school! Among them are the driver, who is a mummy; a werewolf, a skeleton, a pumpkin head, etc. After the story was over, I asked Lexi if she liked the book. She said "Yes, but Lexi was reading this story, to her sister, Victoria as I was driving them to their dentist appointment!

She said "Yes, but I'm glad, I don't ride a school or ghoul bus!"

    A book with a Halloween theme, rhyming words, and fun pictures is sure to attract readers once during the month of October. This is pretty cute, and I enjoyed reading through this with a small group of students. It was easy to read for them and it generated some excitement in looking through the pictures.

    Entertaining and funny, my 4yo LOVES this book and we have read it TWELVE times in a weeks. Not scary but “fun scary” for littles. “The jack-o-lantern head full of worms is the most disgusting thing ever and I like it!” - V, age 4

Horn Book (Spring 2009) In this entertaining Halloween-themed story, a boy mistakenly boards a bus filled with a ghoulish cast of characters, including a mutant mummy driver, a pumpkin head, and a witch named Dolores. Bright, playful digital illustrations and zippy rhyming text bring this wild ride to life. The embossed cardstock pages will stand up to repeat readings long after Halloween is over.

School Library Journal (November 1, 2008) K-Gr 2-Although the concept of a boy who mistakenly gets on a school bus for spooks is fun, the rhyming text is trite and uninspired: "A blockhead MONSTER stomped inside/and someone called, 'Hey Rufus!'/A swirl of BATS flew through the door-/I jumped just like a doofus." Ho's computer-generated art depicts the cartoon Halloween creatures as a laughing, nonthreatening group. The boy looks uncomfortable when he first notices that he is surrounded by assorted monsters, but joins in their smiles when he realizes it's just Halloween fun. The text swooshes in a wavy pattern that matches the singsong rhythm of the verses. A few words in each stanza are in a larger font and/or are in color, but they do not necessarily serve as a guide to help readers know which words to stress when reading the book aloud. The purple background scenes inside the bus add a touch of spooky night, while bats, worms, and other jolly crawlies haunt the pages. With all the great Halloween books currently available, this book is a marginal addition at best.-Martha Simpson, Stratford Library Association, CT Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.

    This is such a fun Halloween story! I love how the illustrations were supportive of the text but also could tell a story all on their own. I would recommend this story for preschool to about fifth grade.

    I got this book last year. It is one of my favorite books to read when I go to the school and read to the children. The pictures are fabulous and it rhymes, and there are lots of opportunities to do different voices.

    Two things I liked about this book: 1. It was a great rhyming book, 2. The monsters weren't too scary for the little ones. On the whole this book was just ok. It is a funny idea to think of Monsters going to "Ghoul School". Good story time book. Two things I liked about this book: 1. It was a great rhyming book, 2.

    This is a nice Halloween story set in rhyme. Most of the rhymes are well written although some do not follow the pattern and are a little forced. Its very clever and has a nice theme.

    This has been my daughter's favorite book for 2 years (she's now 4-and-a-half). It's silly and fun. Great illustrations and typography. This has been my daughter's favorite book for 2 years (she's now 4-and-a-half). It's silly and fun. Great illustrations and typography.
