Publishers Description
When "The Wheels on the Bus," by Caldecott Medalist Paul O. Zelinsky, broke onto the scene back in 1990, it created a sensation with its clever characters, sly subplots, luscious colors, and the incomparable flair of its moving parts. Almost a million young readers have enjoyed the wheels that go round, doors that open and shut, and people who go bumpety-bump. Today it remains as fresh and engaging as when it was first published.

More About Paul Zelinsky

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Jacob Ludwig Karl, the elder of the brothers Grimm, was born in 1785, andWilhelm Karlin the following year. They both studied at Marburg, and from 1808 to 1829 mainly worked in Kassel as state-appointed librarians, Jacob also assisting in diplomatic missions between 1813 and 1815 and again in 1848. Both brothers had been professors at Gottingen for several years when in 1837 they became two of the seven leading Gottingen academics dismissed from their posts by the new King of Hanover for their liberal political views. In 1840 they were invited by Frederick William IV of Prussia to settle in Berlin as members of the Academy of Sciences, and here they remained until their deaths (Wilhelm died in 1859 and Jacob in 1863).
Paul Zelinsky was born in Evanston, Illinois. He attended Yale University, where he took a course with Maurice Sendak, which later inspired him to pursue a career in children's books.

Paul Zelinsky lives in New York with his wife, Deborah, and the younger of their two daughters."

Reviews - What do customers think about The Wheels on the Bus?

Engaging, beautiful, clever book  Jan 14, 2008
My grandchild has known the "wheels on the bus" song since she was a baby. Now 2 1/2 I bought her this book because of that and because I know Paul Zelinsky's work. She absolutely loves it. It is clever and interactive, colorful and wonderful and fun.
Wonderful book for children  Jan 8, 2008
This is a most beautifully illustrated book. It turns a song that can become boring for adults after singing it 100 times into a beuatiful story about a dog chasing a bus, a lost kitten, crying babies, soothing mothers, and wheels that literally turn round and round. There are hidden stories within the story. A wonderful investment for a child's library.
Great book - love all the moving parts!  Dec 31, 2007
OUr 2.5 son received this for Christmas, we have read it several times each day since. He loves the moving parts!!
The Best!!!!!!  Nov 29, 2007
My 22 month old, loves this book. He actually is obsessed with it, demanding "BUS" several times a day. He laughs hysterically at the interactive driver saying 'move on back, move on back" and finds it exciting to spin the wheels on the bus.
Every child has to have this book!  Sep 29, 2007
I got this book originally as a baby shower book for my first son. He has loved this book since he was old enough to focus. He still loves it. And even better is that there is a story within a story through the pictures. Every child should have this book!
