The Magic School Bus® Inside Ralphie

Series: The Magic School Bus (Book #10)
by Joanna Cole, Beth Nadler Illustrated by John Speirs, Bruce Degen

It's Broadcast Day in Ms. Frizzle's class. Ralphie promised everyone he'd figure out what kind of show they should put on. But, Ralphie is sick and can't come to school. So, everyone climbs aboard the Magic School Bus, because if Ralphie can't come to class, Ms. Frizzle's class will come to him! Join the class as they travel Ralphie's bloodstream to find out how germs make him sick and how his body can make him well again.

Designed to be accessible for younger readers, books in this series are easier to read and follow the plot of the popular PBS Magic School Bus television series — based on the original Magic School Bus books written by Joanna Cole and illustrated by Bruce Degen.
