The Frightful Ride of Michael McMichael

By Bonny Becker
Illustrated by Mark Fearing

Bonny Becker and Mark Fearing join forces for a deliciously spooky story — with a twist ending that’ll leave readers hungry for more.

When the Thirteen bus pulls up one dreary, stormy evening, something about it doesn’t seem quite right. The driver grins down with a mouthful of long, white teeth, and there’s barely any room to sit, but Michael McMichael is bringing his gran something very dear, so he gets on board despite his misgivings. But as they travel on and the rest of the passengers get off, Michael realizes there’s nothing normal about this bus — and the driver is getting creepier by the minute. Best-selling author Bonny Becker’s cleverly rhyming text will chill and thrill readers alongside Mark Fearing’s wonderfully funny illustrations, making this book perfect for Halloween story times — and lovers of things that go bump in the night.

  • An exciting new picture book from the author of the beloved Bear and Mouse picture books and the illustrator of The Great Thanksgiving Escape and Great, Now We've Got Barbarians!
  • A deliciously creepy story with just enough chills and sly humor for the older picture book reader.
  • The sophisticated rhythm and rhyme and the delightful suspenseful twist ending will make this a terrific read-aloud.
