The Magic School Bus books and cartoon were two of my personal favorites. Sadly, a lot of the kids in my class thought riding the “Magic School Bus” was an attainable dream. Personally, I think that Ms. Frizzle was allowed to go on crazy adventures by consuming some heavy duty drugs. I also assume she was distributing those same drugs to the kids, which allowed them to follow her on the journey. I think I had perfect attendance for one year based solely on the fact that I held out hope that my bus ride would turn magical. Unfortunately, my driver was no Ms. Frizzle and the most magical thing my bus ever did was break down and make me late enough to miss a spelling test that I wasn’t prepared for.
