Quotes & Awards

  • “Energetic…should not be missed.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Replete with a full cast performance, occasional sound effects, and an energetic background score, the book comes to life for listeners…It is done to perfection.”

    School Library Journal

  • “First-rate science in a delightfully appealing package.”

    Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

  • “The delightful energy of a Magic Schoolbus adventure radiates through this adventure!…This is experiential learning at its best! Morris and Adams sparkle as the students—testy, anxious, bossy, and bickering—and the quirky Ms. Frizzle. Factual information about the solar system is provided subtly and effectively. Sound effects—that of an asteroid hitting the bus, for example—complement the adventure.”
