    >Great interview with Cole. I I wish you'd asked her though, if she'd found any "science" that had changed between the first Magic School Bus book and today. My mother works in a Natural History museum and it's been interesting to see Accepted Theories change, over a relatively short time. I wonder if the pace is accelerating since the days when it thirty years to get people to stop putting Brontosauri in childrens' books.
