A Kid's Review - Published on
Have you ever rode the school bus?Did you have a nice bus driver and then you got a mean bus driver?If you want the experience read Dont get driving the school bus to learn how it feels.

I have read alot of books but this the is the first book I dont want to put down.This book is about a kid named Kyle who thinks he is the class clown.After school he gets on the bus and he has a bad bus driver who will get you in trouble if you switch seats. He used to have to try to get the mean bus driver to quit.

I like that the book has a related part because I am a sixth grader like kyle and his friends.

I realy recommend this book to people who like read books about a trouble should read this book because you will wet your pants with laughter.

Together they can do anything they want. but i guess i can't forget about the Single Digits. They are little kids who are the most annoying and can annoy you to death.Right now They have the nicest bus driver bit things turn for th worst. In this book the setting takes place in a school The school is elementary and middle school. Then there is the school bus a bright yellow stuby bus ,it lookes like they ran out of seats and windows so they stoped building it. So one sunny morning Kyle, Dusty and Willson get on the bus only to find that instead of their nice bus driver there's a mean bus driver named Sarge.Sarge trys to to catch kyle, Dusty and Willson doing something bad all the time but they manage to stay out of getting in trouble.Then they find out that because they left a box of wasps on the bus onthe bus for science their old bus driver was stung and couldn'tcome back to work. To make matters worse they almost get in trouble for glueing the Single Digits to there saets and for tying there shoelaces together. After a couple of days they find out that the principal cancled the bus route. so they think of one final plan to annoy Sarge to death so he quiets . but the plan goes all wrong.Sarge stops the bus and yells at themall! It get's worse there were stoped on train traks and the train was comeing!Sarge hits his head head and can't drivethe bus !! So kyle takes the wheel and drives out of the traks but he can't stop!! He ends up in jail!!But kyle ,Dusty and Willson tell the storyand end up heros!! I think the lesson to learn is not to drive the school bus or try to get in trouble It's just not worth it. I highly recommend this book to anyone it's funny interesting and cool.

Don't Get Caught Driving the School Bus
By: Todd Strasser

Don't Get Caught Driving the School Bus is about three boys: Wilson, Kyle, and Dusty, who are bad. They break almost every rule in their school. They put a wasp's nest in the school bus and the wasps hurt the old bus driver, a.k.a "Grandma". Then Sarge, a former prison bus driver, is their new bus driver. Sarge lets Kyle drive the bus when they're right on a train track! Sarge jumps to get in the driver's seat and he hits a pole, which knocks him out. Then guess what? You'll have to read, "Don't Get Caught Driving the School Bus."
I liked this book because it was funny. At some parts, I laughed out loud. If I had to rate this book on a scale of 1-10, it would definitely be a 10.
Todd Strasser has written many novels for children of all ages. He is one of my favorite authors and if you read one of his books I bet he will be one of yours too.

A Kid's Review - Published on
My favorite book is Don�t Get Caught Driving The School Bus by Todd Strasser. I chose this book because I was having trouble picking out a book so my sister recommended it to me. It looked boring but when I started reading it I liked it. This book took place around our time, now. The characters in this book are wild and funny, though one character is mean.
In this book there is one important event, because it is a fiction (not real) book. It was where the kids on the bus where trouble makers. They got in trouble and the bus driver pulled over in the middle of train tracks. He got up and yelled. When he went to sit down, he bumped his head on the bar and got knocked out. They got up and heard a train so one of the boys had to drive them to safety. I think the author was trying to say: �Even if you�re trouble makers you can be heroes too.� I recommend this book if you like humor or adventure and excitement.

Kyle, Dusty, and Wilson are always in trouble. From the carelessness of eachother, they accidently left a wasp's nest in the school bus. Poor Grandma (the bus driver) was replaced by an old prison bus driver because she was sent to the hospital. Kyle, Dusty, and Wilson do everything trying toget rid of him. Now they have put themselves, the single digits, and the bus driver in a life and death situation.
