From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2-- A rainy afternoon, rush hour traffic, a grumpy bus conductor, people scurrying to reach home--the scene is set for a humdrum ride home on a crowded city bus. But--a witch gets on at Paddington Station. (She is told, rather bluntly, that she will have to leave her broom by the door.) Not intimidated in the least, she chats with those around her and soon, through the "magic" of cheeriness, she provides enough surprises from her satchel to make the trip home a marvel of adventure for all. Good fun is in store for all who take a trip on this red, double-decker from Paddington to Victoria Station in London. Bright watercolor illustrations are a delightful complement to an economic, expressive text of vocabulary not beyond older primary readers. The colorful dust jacket itself spurs wonder and imagination (why is a witch boarding a bus?), and young listeners and readers will be taken through all the moods of weariness to relaxation from beginning to satisfying ending. This book begs the announcement, "Read me; I'm full of fun!," and will be a treat as a read-aloud--or alone. --Mary Lou Budd, Milford South Elementary School, Ohio
