But this book is far from ordinary.
It’s an extraordinary tale, with an introduction to a plethora of characters and minute details to pore over.
From a sleeping sloth to a pickpocketing fox, the sharp eyed reader will spot that there are a number of other stories playing out alongside this girl’s solo bus journey.
Keep an eye on the changing newspaper headlines that covers the face of another passenger whom we never see.
Each spread displays the inside of the long bus, with plenty to be watching out for.
Marianne Dubuc‘s humorous gags and sense of playfulness is obvious from the outset.
Dubuc’s story is crying out for children to add their own imaginative edge to each sub story going on within each spread.
The characterisation of the animals is executed to perfection and it’s easy to spot the visual humour in this story.
This is a beautifully understated but highly imaginative and clever story from Dubuc as she continues to deliver high quality picture books for all ages.
