Yay! From Publisher's Weekly today

"Allyn Johnston and Andrea Welch at Beach Lane Books have bought world rights to It’s Your First Day of School, Busy Bus! by Jody Jensen Shaffer, a picture book about a school bus who has first-day-of-school jitters, until he discovers he's not alone. Claire Messer will illustrate; publication is set for summer 2018. Kathleen Rushall of Andrea Brown Literary Agency represented the author and Rebecca Sherman of Writers House represented the illustrator."

HONK!  :bus
