Dear Joanna,

I'm sorry that you died a few days ago, and you've heard about what happened to Little Richard, right? There's also gonna be a Magic School Bus movie, there was a Magic School Bus Rides Again, but it didn't last long, it lasted from September 29, 2017 to April 13, 2018, which was almost 7 months, but we will miss you Joanna Cole. Warmest regards.

Love, CAJ
