As a bus progresses on its route to the garage, where it will park for the night, various travelersactors, commuters, familieshop off at their stops. When a number of riders is named (for example, 10 baseball players disembark and head for a playing field), readers can count along, but more often, the text suggests different objects to pick out from each spread. Gomi's pictures are beautifully composed, using white space to carve out both the horizon and the shape of the bus. Gomi's illustrations will appeal to children for their simplicity, and to adults for their strong graphics. No ages given. (Dec.)
