The Hundred Decker Bus by Mike Smith

Every day, the bus driver finishes his cup of tea, puts on his jacket and sets off on his route. Every day , the man with the big red tie gets on at the roundabout, the lady with the pram gets on at the library and the noisy children get on at Clover Drive. But what if one day the driver turned down a new and exciting road, and picked up new and exciting people? So many people that the bus simply wouldn't be big enough? Well, they would only be one solution ...A bright, bold and funny book with a surprise GIANT fold-out ending.

When he was a child, Mike's favourite illustrators were Herge, Charles Schultz and Richard Scarry, all of whom still influence his work today.

THE HUNDRED DECKER BUS is Mike's debut picture book.
