A Bus Ride

Personal project, 2017-2020

(unpublished)

It is a story of building an unlikely friendship that overcomes initial prejudice. Toby, the little crocodile, met a man with a dangerous looking necklace and a lady he assumed was frowning the whole time under her face cover. Toby wanted to avoid them at all costs, but he had to sit next to them on the bus. Toby wished the bus would arrive soon at his home - however, through an incident, he found out that the two strangers are pleasantly the opposite of who he thought they would be.
