The Bus is about to leave, so the bus driver asks the passengers to take out their tickets. Suddenly, a blast of wind blows everyone's tickets far away. The driver decides right away that he should get back the tickets. Therefore, the passengers follow the driver and embark on their journey, from the city to the incredible places! They ascend the mountains, climb the cliffs, and pass the seaside and the snow; they meet the fairy, the sea dragon king, and the snow monster… they even break into the racing tracks! At last, in the place where the sun sets, they find the tickets on a tall tree. Will they get back the tickets without a hitch? What amazing scene will there be on the tree? Hsu-Kung Liu uses orange and blue as his main colors throughout the book. His brushstrokes are simple and of childlike fun, and by using lively lines and large areas of color, he successfully presents a sense of vibrancy. His unique sense of humor makes this seemingly unrestrained story a little more philosophical and warm.
