Summary: A young boy rides the bus across town with his grandmother and learns to appreciate the beauty in everyday things.

Rating: 4 ****

Although the book won The Newbery Prize for Literature, it has been criticized for its poor grammar and a little too unrealistic view of how wonderful it is to take a city bus.
