Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 3-Hector boards a crowded bus in his town in the Andes Mountains and sees that people, bags, and bundles are packed into every nook and cranny. As the driver stops to admit more people, the boy cries out, "There's no more room, this bus is packed.- we are piled and stacked up to the roof and out the door." But the driver yells, "Just one more!" Passengers come aboard with soda, animals, and even a fussing baby until, finally, a chain of events that starts with a burp causes the driver to lose control, and the bus lands, safely, in a ditch. The riders disembark and resume their journeys on foot, but when the driver removes a bicycle from the roof, the child asks him if there's room for "just one more." The man obliges, and they ride off together "down the bumpy road towards home." With its rhythmic, repetitive refrain, this book makes an ideal read-aloud. Children will quickly chant along with Hector each time he warns of the potential overload, and be especially amused by all the animals. Gamboa's cartoonlike watercolors extend the humor of the story and the hues nicely depict a warm day high in the mountains. Attractive endpapers have a handmade, fibrous look and complement this folksy tale.

Format: Hardcover
Just One More is the entertaining children's picturebook deftly written by Wendi Silvano and brightly illustrated in watercolor art by Ricardo Gamboa about a rickety old bus in the Andes Mountains, jammed full of passengers, as the calm driver stops again and again to let still more crazy passengers aboard. From a young boy and his hungry llama to a woman with a bag full of chickens, the wacky and delightful people and animals on board the bus make for mounting excitement in this amusing and entertaining story for beginning readers.
