After she teaches her class about the human body and they visit the science museum, wacky Ms Frizzle shrinks the bus and the class, except for Arnold who swallows them. With the bus inside, the class gets an up close look at parts of the body and how they work. They travel from the stomach to the small intestines, into blood vessels, to the bones of the spine and muscles. The students wonder how they will ever get out.

Cole was born in Newark, New Jersey, and grew up in nearby East Orange. She loved science as a child, and had a teacher she says was a little like Ms. Frizzle.
