Dog on His Bus

Dog on His Bus
Written by Eric Seltzer
Illustrated by Sebastien Braun
Penguin Young Readers, c2012.  32 pages. Easy reader.

Dog drives the downtown bus, a job that he loves and does well. He takes various animals to their destinations all around town, and even when he has to change a flat, he does so cheerfully. This book shows us his interesting route as he drops passengers off, like "Hen and Snake need a hat. I drop them off at Hats by Cat." This would be an appropriate choice for progressing readers, because it uses simple sentences and rhyming phrases. The illustrations are adorable, and there are many cute animals to identify.  It is a book reminiscent of Richard Scarry's Busytown titles.

I love, love,love Dog on his Bus. I hope it wins something, but it's probably not flamboyant enough.
