Magic School Bus’ Ms Frizzle Cast: Today In Books

Magic School Bus’ Ms Frizzle Cast

The Magic School Bus, a book series that was also a cartoon series in the ’90s, has cast its Ms Frizzle for the upcoming live-action film: Elizabeth Banks will play the magical elementary school teacher. Here’s hoping Lily Tomlin, who voiced the cartoon character, will have a surprise role in the film.


If you need a break from coloring books and puzzles here’s a beautiful paper doll set to download and print of Noemí Taboada, the main character in Silvia Moreno-Garcia’s suspenseful Mexican Gothic. You get the main Noemí doll and four outfits to change her into.

This Sounds Awesome!

As a huge fan of genre blending, this upcoming graphic novel sounds amazing: The Science of Ghosts is a whodunnit mystery, horror, and a love story. Created by Lilah Sturges (Lumberjanes) and Alitha E. Martinez (Black Panther: World of Wakanda), the graphic novel will star Joy Ravenna, a transgender parapsychologist and will incorporate “psychology, dream logic, the symbolism of ghost narratives, and queer love stories.” Yes, want. Now. (But we have to wait until 2021.)
