HASH(0xa09c70f0) étoiles sur 5 A complex tale of one panda's struggle and descent into madness 21 novembre 2012
Par Bad Panda - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Cartonné
"Wheels on the Bus", by David Ellwand, is a book with many layers and a well-woven complex story. On the surface, it appears to be about the happy-go-lucky Teddy Town Bus as it drives around town (presumably Teddy Town, although this is not explicitly acknowledged in the book) picking up bear passengers. Throughout the journey, (spoiler) the wheels on the bus spin around around and around, all through the town (end spoiler).

But Ellwand subtly alludes to another story, one where not everything is as it seems. When the story begins by picking a few happy parents and children, we see a unnamed lone panda in the back of the empty bus, pining for the unrequited love of the bus driver, Ted.

Businessmen (business-bears?) and a young socialite wait to board the bus while Ted says "all aboard!" over and over. The panda observes quietly from the back of the bus, seething with rage and ruby, bloodshot eyes (from a night of hard drugs or bad allergies, the author does not reveal) - Ted has never sung the all aboard ditty to panda.

Ted then stops to allow a hipster bear, wearing a cloying yellow and olive scarf in an attempt to show his magnificent "uniqueness", to pass while riding his bike. Once the biker has safely pedaled by, Ted tells the passengers "off we go!" three times (at this point, becoming a slightly annoying pattern). Panda is no where to be seen...

A peel of thunder is then heard and a stream of rain begins falling. A naked bear using a rainbow umbrella (evidently nudity is socially acceptable in Teddy Town) waits at the next stop. Ted turns on the heater and defogs the windshield as the precipitation pounds onto the metal bus; the windshield wipers go back and forth in a staccato rhythm - swish swish...swish swish..swish swish. Panda, still at the back of the bus, although now in a back corner, stares at the back of Ted's head, his red eyes seeming to try and shoot lasers at him. The other passengers - a mother and baby bear cub, a spectacled white-haired bear with a dog (assumed to be a service dog) - have no idea that panda has more in mind than just public transportation.

In the next chapter, the rain has stopped and no new passengers are picked up. A hush falls over the bus, suddenly broken by the wail of the baby bear cub. Panda, still alone in the back of the bus, is driven to madness by the shrieks of the baby - "wah-wah-wah", "wah-wah-wah", "wah-wah-wah". While not seen or written about directly, it is clear panda has a destructive package with him under the back seat of the bus. "Ted will pay for ignoring me all these years", thinks Panda.

A free-spirited bear (wearing an inspired rainbow striped vest), attempts to flag down the bus. Ted, however, keeps on driving while his partner (and presumed lover) merrily rings the bus' bell. The dings and dongs of the bell are like knives in the back of Panda, tearing at his soul. Ted, for his part, has no idea that Panda has pined for him all these years, as Panda has never spoken to him. But that matters not to Panda, and seeing Ted with his domestic partner is too much to bear (pun intended).

Ted's significant other leaves the bus, while a cadre of immigrant bears are forced off the bus by Ted. In a shocking twist unbeknownst to the hard working foreigners, the Teddy Town bus' next stop is at a border crossing - these bears are being deported! Oddly, the deportees do not seemed troubled at this development, offering friendly valedictions to Ted ("Cheerio!" says one, "Ciao!" offers another). Meanwhile, Panda remains at the back of the bus, unmoved and unwavering in his deluded mission. The book ends on a cliffhanger, with a young family and baby remaining on the presumably doomed bus, Ted waving goodbye and preparing to get back into the drivers seat for perhaps for the last time.

It is unclear if the author is simply leaving the story with loose ends to spare us the grisly details and allow us our own, perhaps happier conclusions, or if he is simply milking the "Wheels" franchise for yet another money-grabbing sequel. Regardless of the motives for the rather unsatisfying ending, overall this is a well-crafted thriller that intrigues by slowly simmering rather than burning in a flash of action. Four stars.

HASH(0xa09c96a8) étoiles sur 5 Great book but you cannot replace the battery :( 3 mai 2012
Par SF Gustav - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Cartonné Achat vérifié
Our toddler loves this book and its tune, in fact, we are on our second copy of it. The only criticism is that the darn manufacturer installs a battery that cannot be replaced, so when the battery dies, you have to buy another copy of the book (and throw away the one with the dead battery). Seems wasteful (and expensive). They should make one with replaceable batteries! Still, we love the book!

My baby loved this book even when he was only 2-3 months old, but the battery died really fast, so that I haven't pulled it out to read to him for several months. I think the music button only lasted a couple of months.

My son is 10 months old and this is his favorite book. He likes to push the button to hear the song even when we aren't reading the book. It always brings loads of smiles and sometimes dancing too. Great fun!

HASH(0xa09d7ee8) étoiles sur 5 Great customer service! 7 décembre 2011

The bad news is that the battery is not replaceable on the book. The good news is that I contacted the publisher to confirm that there was no way to replace the battery, and they sent me a replacement book for free. They were super quick to respond, and great to deal with. I can't say that they will continue to replace the book in perpetuity, but they went above and beyond to make sure that I was satisfied. I will definitely purchase books from this publisher again!
