The Magic School Bus Gets a Bright Idea

The Magic School Bus Gets a Bright Idea

by Nancy White Illustrated by John Speirs

Ms. Frizzle's class thinks the PTA light show is pretty wild, but really surprising things happen when the show is over. Ms. Frizzle and the Magic School Bus arrive just in time to help solve the mystery and teach about the properties of light.

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.
