The Hundred Decker Bus *Book Review*


Featuring a very big fold-out page and lots of intricate, coloured pictures this book is a fun read for little ones. The story follows the adventure of a bus driver who is bored of his every day routine of a cup of tea, popping on his jacket and driving down the same route seeing the same people. He decides to take a little road that he hadn't noticed before and therefore he explores new places and meets new characters on the way.

The bus is extended in size to make space for all of the passengers, travels across water on a ferry and receives assistance when it comes into difficulty with smoke billowing out from under the bonnet... Where is ends up you, I'll leave for you to find out!

 
This debut picture book from Mike Smith is packed with detailed drawings and has new things to find with each read. It also helps to develop counting skills as children can count all of the different decks up to 100 and shows that with teamwork anything is achievable.


The Mini Mes enjoyed the book.
 

 
Jamster: The map page is good as you can see where the bus has been and I liked the fold out page as it's massive!
