The author has described the things that Valli saw from an eight-year-old's point of

view. She was fascinated by a bus. Watching the bus filled with a new set of people

each time was a source of unending joy for her. Her strongest desire was to ride the

bus. She saved money by cutting on peppermints, toys, and balloons, and even

resisting the temptation to ride the merry-go-round at the fair. When the author

describes the bus, the points he stresses on are the colour and look of the bus. It was a

'new bus', painted a 'gleaming white'. The overhead bars 'shone like silver'. The seats

were 'soft and luxurious'. The descriptions that the author gives when Valli looked

outside are also typical for an eight-year-old. The 'blue, blue sky' and the 'acres and

acres of green fields - green, green, green' show the enthusiasm of a kid on looking at
