Hop aboard Joe's bus on its way to the market! Here come families carrying fruit and vegetables and boxes and coats, and some chickens ...and goats! Soon the bus is full to the top and little Keb has to sit right at the back with the animals. And when the bus reaches a hill it just can't go any further. How can they lighten the load and get to market on time? Elizabeth Dale's lively and humorous text is brought vividly to life by Erika Pal's colourful artwork.
