I have only just discovered Bob Graham and I love his books.  They are quiet, gentle and inspiring.  Reading them makes me want to be a better person and leave the world a better place.  A Bus Called Heaven is no exception.

In A Bus Called Heaven, an old abandoned bus is left on the street.  Stella finds it and everyone helps to push it into her front yard.  It quickly becomes a meeting point for her community as the adults clean up the bus while the children play underneath it.  People bring donations for the bus, street gang The Ratz paint it, and Mrs Stavros brings a bus cake.  Until one day, a tow truck arrives to tow the bus away because it is obstructing the footpath.  What will Stella and her friends do?
