Jay-Jay And The Carnival by Sue Wickstead #Blogtour #Giveaway #Review


Jay-Jay the Supersonic Bus is a brightly coloured playbus full of toys. He’s always ready for

adventure, and after an eventful summer the bus is ready for his journey to the carnival. The

children are also excited – but what will happen on the way?

My Review

I’d like to thank Rachel’s Random Resources and Sue Wickstead for inviting me into this gorgeous blog tour.

It’s always a pleasure to take part in one of Sue’s blog tours.

My collection of Jay Jay The Bus books are steadily increasing and my Grandson loves it!

This book tied in beautifully for carnival season. We actually used it in our 3 year class room at my pre-school for a theme we were using.

The Jay Jay books are my Grandson’s all time favourite bedtime reads. He is now the proud owner of a Jay Jay bus which goes everywhere with him!

Jay Jay always brings a smile to the youngsters faces and opens up their minds for lots of questions.

The illustrations are colourful and clear and Sue’s style of writing enables you to paint a perfect picture in the readers mind of the story.

I can’t wait for the next chapter in Jays Jay’s adventures!

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.
