School Bus of Horrors

From dawn to dusk, the School Bus of Horrors rumbles along city streets and down country roads, searching for another passenger. It looks like any other bus, yellow, black markings, and dirty windows. But BEWARE! Step aboard and experience the ride of your life, or the last ride you'll ever take! This addictively creepy series from Michael Dahl will keep young readers on the edge of their bus seats until the final stop.
