A Bus Called Heaven

By Bob Graham

A broken, old bus appears one morning, sad as a whale on a beach, right outside Stella's house. On the front of it, held up with packing tape, is a hand painted sign... "Heaven".

For Stella, this decrepit old vehicle is special -this bus is "ours" - a place for everyone to be together: hold meetings, play games and share stories. But one day, the bus is towed away and Stella must fight to save not just the bus, but everything the community has worked so hard to create.

  • A Bus Called Heaven won the CBCA 2012 Picture Book of the Year award.
  • A Bus Called Heaven was short-listed for the 2011 WA Premier's Awards.
  • A Bus Called Heaven is endorsed by Amnesty International.
