Kyle is dreading his first trip on the school bus. Luckily, his big brother, James, is a school-bus expert. James gives Kyle ten rules for riding the bus that he absolutely, positively must obey if he wants to avoid getting laughed at, yelled at, pushed around, or even pounded. On his fateful first ride, Kyle struggles to remember and follow each of his brother’s rules, but along the way, he learns the school bus isn’t so bad after all—and he may even have a thing or twoto teach his brother.

"Worthy of being shelved next to Jon Scieszka’s funniest."—Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"Though his hair recalls Conan O'Brien, first-time school bus rider Kyle's anxiety-ridden narration is straight out ofA Christmas Story."—Publishers Weekly

"The large, full-page acrylic illustrations constantly shift perspectives and points of view, adding energy, vivacity, and animation. . . . Seasoned bus riders, and anyone who has been misguided by an older sibling’s advice, will certainly enjoy this outrageously humorous, well-told story."School Library Journal,starred review
