Winter packs a wallop in Burskyville. But it doesn't matter how hard it snows, because Axle Annie is the best school bus driver who's ever lived. "Do snow plows plow? Do tow trucks tow? Are school buses yellow? Of course I can make it up Tiger Hill," she says, and that's why the schools never close. The laziest bus driver in town is not pleased at all, so he comes up with a scheme to keep axle Annie off the road. But he's not counting on Axle Annie's gumption. Of course she'll make it up Tiger Hill—won't she?

"With hilarious over-the-top characters, this satisfyingly outrageous tale will tickle readers' funny bones."—Kirkus Reviews

"Arnold's cartoons add just the right amount of humor."—School Library Journal

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A fun read with kids My kids (ages 5, 7) love this book. We read it often and always chant the response Annie gives the Superintendent together. It is a wonderful story about determination and a positive attitude. We love the names of the other characters and the consequences they experience due to their poor judgement! GREAT FUN!
