Joanna Cole, author of The Magic School Bus series, has died at the age of 75. A former teacher and librarian, she was the author of more than 250 books. Interested in science at an early age, she wrote her first children’s book about cockroaches because there were no cockroach books for kids! She then went on to write the popular science series, The Magic School Bus, with more than 93 million copies in print, which later turned into a television series.
