The Lovereading4Kids comment

Prize-winning funny book author Andy Stanton of Mr Gum fame has created a gleefully gruesome picture book celebrating just about everything that is nasty! When Uncle toad invites and all to hop aboard his bus they think they are in for a treat…Little do Beetle Bill, Daddy Long Legs or Madame Claire the spider know what is in store for them in this dirt-encrusted cautionary tale.


Here Comes the Poo Bus by Andy Stanton

All aboard, all aboard! But beware, this isn't any ordinary bus. Oh no. Uncle Toad may seem a friend as he collects the insects for a special trip on his bus of poo, but it's just a cunning ruse. Because when they reach the seaside, it's gobble, gobble, munch munch as greedy Uncle Toad gorges himself rotten. Eeuugggh.
