9 of 9 people found the following review helpful By M. Allen Greenbaum HALL OF FAMEVINE VOICE on April 26, 2001
Format: Paperback
A fun book in the "Magic School Bus" series, this is a fact- and pun-filled account of Ms. Frizzle's students (and parents) going on a field trip to learn more about bats. Some of the kids are a little nervous at first: Ralphie believes that bats are really vampires! The field trip shows otherwise, as bat-facts are presented in a creative and interesting manner.
The famous bus does do some magic here: Turning into a "bat bus" to demonstrate echolocation, and then turning the children into bats (temporarily!) so they can learn about bat food, bat predators, bat flight speed, and general "hanging around (upside down from the branches of a tree)." Facts replace suspicion (Is Ms. Frizzle herself a vampire? Did she turn the parents into vampires?), and the story ends with yet another pun. (Be your own judge about whether this story might be too frightening for the very young). With bright, colorful (but not extraordinary) illustrations on each one of the story's 28 pages, and two pages with letters about bats and bat facts. Probably not as exciting as Batman, but fans of "The Magic School Bus" and nature facts should love it.

If your kid like miss Frizzle then you are set. The book is also a fun read for the adult too and short enough to use up the one book before bed period.

as expected- my son ruined this book that he borrowed from his classroom and I needed to replace it. Came in time in expected condition.

Format: Paperback
The students in Mrs. Frizzle class are excited about their nocturnal field trip and they show deference to their teacher. Moreover, the teacher understands that her students are credulous and she take advantage of this fact to give the students an unforgettable experience. For instance, she makes them think their parents will be castigated during the field trip. In other words she puts a little fear into their hearts, but just enough so that the reader enjoys the story.
