Gus is a very large, very special green dinosaur—and he makes the perfect city schoolbus. Or does he? He causes traffic jams, gets tangled in telephone lines, knocks down traffic lights, and creates potholes with his big stomping feet. If the principal fires Gus from schoolbus duty, how will the thirty-ton dino find a new job? Lynn’s wonderful, sketchy watercolor and pencil illustrations recall old classics, as does the pleasantly preposterous story of a dinosaur who just wants to be helpful.
Gus is a very large, very special dinosaur. He's a school bus for children in the city, which is lots of fun for the kids, but lots of trouble for almost everyone else! After a series of mishaps on the city streets?traffic jams, knocked-down houses, and potholes the size of small cars--will Gus be removed from school bus duty? How will a thirty-ton dinosaur find a new job? Readers will adore this delightful story with its whimsical illustrations and happy surprise ending.
