The Magic School Bus author Joanna Cole has passed away at seventy-five years old.
Read on to find out all the details about her death.
Joanna Cole is a legend in the industry.
As a child, her interest in reading started in an unlikely subject.
Her teacher let her check out a science book once a week.
Her love for science was a lot stronger though.
So it made sense when she announced her favorite book as a child was Bugs, Insects and Such.
Yes, this woman could do it all.
She quickly moved onto working for news agencies...
With her foot in the door and a lot of experience under her belt, she was ready to continue progressing...
And that's when she fell into her dream job... Writing children's books.
But there's one particular book that stands out from the rest of her work.
The Magic School Bus, of course.
It sold millions of copies as well as being translated into multiple different languages.
The series was recently adapted into a show which is now showing on Netflix...
It has 4 seasons for your viewing pleasure.
So, after shaping our childhood's it hurts to bring you such unfortunate news.
Scholastic announced that the author died on Sunday.
They also mentioned that the cause was idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis.
