Quotes & Awards

  • “[A] fanciful yet scientifically accurate romp…Experience the wet wonders of potentially dry textbook subjects: where sand comes from, why oceans are salty, how fish breathe, the ‘not-fish’ sea animals, underwater food chains, life in hot water vents and coral reefs.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “This is another first-class entry in a stellar series that makes science fascinating and fun. We eagerly await more trips on Ms. Frizzle’s extraordinary bus.”


  • “The vibrant text is well researched and accurate; it is presented with such humor and lightness that everyone will wish for a seat on that magic bus. A great way to escape a hot, stuffy school, and to embark on a cool adventure.”

    School Library Journal

  • “Ms. Frizzle’s class embarks on a marvelous undersea adventure, where they swim with the fishes and observe various marine plants and animals, explore the deep ocean floor, see the formation of an island coral reef, witness life in a tidal pool, and much more. This entertaining and educational underwater bus ride introduces learners to the ocean’s creatures, levels, and geological formations.”

    Children’s Literature

  • “As always, the pace is breathless, the facts well chosen, the excitement of scientific study neatly evoked, and Ms. Frizzle’s wardrobe equal to every extraordinary occasion.”

    Kirkus Reviews

    " This book is okay. I like the scientific information in it, but I think the story line is terrible. The concept of the book was a good idea, but I think they are running out of creativity on the story line. "
