Jay-Jay the bus is rescued from the dirty scrap yard, where he was sadly gathering dust and
cobwebs. Feeling nervous yet excited, he is taken to an airport where he is magically transformed
into a ‘Playbus’ full of toys, games and adventure.
A fictional tale based on a real-life bus ‘Supersonic’, which flew in the imaginations of the many
young children who visited it.
I’d like to thank Rachel’s Random Resources and Sue Wickstead for inviting me on to this lovely tour.
This is a lovely little story, ideal for children three years and upwards.
My Grandson who is nearly three loved it.
Jay Jay the bus is put out to graze and thinks his life is over, until he is taken away, spruced up and turned into a playbus for the summer. As summer draws to a close he starts to worry he will be forgotten about. But fear not, he is then converted into a playgroup for younger children, but not before he is given a medal by the queen to thank him for all his hard work.
I’ve always got my early years practitioner head on, and this is a lovely book to introduce lots of valuable conversations to children.
The message that runs throughout is so positive, don’t give up and follow your dreams!
Gorgeous illustrations throughout, thank you Sue for a gorgeous book, one that my Grandson will enjoy for many years!

All About Sue
am a teacher and an author and have currently written six children’s picture books with a bus
For over 20 years, alongside my teaching career, I worked with a Children’s Charity, The Bewbush
Playbus Association, which led me to write a photographic history book about it.
I soon found that many children had never been on a bus before, let alone a ‘Playbus’ and they
wanted to know more. I decided to write a fictional tale about the bus, his number plate JJK261 gave
him his name.
‘Jay-Jay the Supersonic Bus,’ came out in print in 2014. It is the story behind the original bus and is
his journey from a scrap-yard to being changed into a playbus for children to play in. From Fact to
fiction the bus journey continued.
This story has now been followed by five more picture books.
I also undertake events and author bookings and love to share the story. There are also a few more stories in the writing process, with links to real events and buses.
The story has been read in many schools in the south-East of England, where I teach as a cover
teacher, it is always well received and certainly different.
