Gradually, the kidoodles entered the bus and sat down for their first ride of the year. They were all quiet for a little while, and that was great, but soon they got used to the pitch and roll of the bus – and they started to talk to each other, and to get loud. All except little Jace, who was taking his first ever ride on the big yellow bus. He was one nervous little kidoodle.

Let’s face it, this bus had powers which other buses did not have. It was… a magic bus, full of the understanding and intuition and awareness that is reserved for only the very best school buses. But what do you suppose was the purpose of some of those features?

In the Village

The bus was a very special bus and it had all sorts of special features which none of the other buses had.

The bus was big and beautiful, and oh so ready for the new school year. And Clive, the driver was just as kind as ever. Earlier, in the yard where the bus lived, their first meeting of the year had been very special.

This was going to be a wonderful school year!

Gradually more and more Kidoodles joined the bus and settled in for the run to school. They were quiet at first, but that wasn’t to last.

One by one, the summer-tired kidoodles stepped up into the bus and, as the Sun rose warmly behind them, bounced and jostled their way to a new school year.

Even Richard, the ghost kid on the bus, waited by his house for the bus to appear.

It was the first day of school and the first kids waited patiently for the bus.
