Back of the Book Blurb #87 Challenge

From Sioux's PageSioux offers this challenge.

She posts a picture and you need to imagine it as a graphic for a book. You choose the genre and book title, and then write a blurb that might appear on the back of the book.

The blurb should be 150 words or less (not including the title). The genre is wide-open.
Each blogger should include their blurb on their own blog, and link back to this post. Have fun with it. Go to the other posts and comment on the other blurbs.  You can do fancy techy things with the photo.

(Join in if you dare...! It sounds like fun! I think this would be a lot of fun to do with students especially since they would be expected to write 150 words or less!)

Bus Safety Officer

Monty seemed to have trouble with controlling the students on his bus. 

Worried about his future, Monty noticed one morning that there was a small dog on the side of the road and remembered seeing it there for the past couple of days. Monty asked the dog if he wanted to join him. With a wag of the tail, the dog, which he named Bonzo, jumped on the bus. 

When chaos erupted from the children, the dog barked loudly and everyone got quiet. Realizing that this might be the answer he was looking for, Monty told the children that if they behaved, Bonzo could stay on the bus but if they got out of their seats or got too loud, Bonzo would have to go. This worked perfectly! 

But later his boss told him that he couldn’t have a dog on the bus so Monty bought Bonzo a disguise! (149 words)

Ooh! I like that idea of a four-legged bus monitor!
