An Interview with Bruce Degen, Illustrator of the Magic School Bus Series
by Alexie Basil
Illustrator Bruce Degen has been bringing Joanna Cole’s writing (and Ms. Frizzle) to life for over 30 years—starting with The Magic School Bus at the Waterworks, the first book in the series and this week’s Dollar Deal.
Watch the video above to learn how Bruce and Joanna created this first Magic School Bus book together, and how proud Bruce is to have illustrated such a classic series.
BONUS: Check out this week’s Cooked Up from a Book for an inside look into how Bruce draws Ms. Frizzle—it makes for an awesome classroom activity!
