My Review

Another amazing book from Sue Wickstead and another one to add to my Grandsons favourite list!

Full of lots of scary and spooky characters perfect for Halloween. With gorgeous illustrations it’s an absolute winner!

It’s a great story to read as you can put lots of feeling and effect into the story telling, and with the repeated refrain “That’s why we didn’t feel wellits great for the children to join in and they pick it up so quickly.

A great book not just at Halloween but all through the year.

All About Sue

I am an author and a teacher and have written six children’s picture books, all with a bus included


Having been able to share my first book, ‘Jay-Jay the Supersonic Bus’, it was time to think about writing a book for younger readers.

While visiting a local school the children were writing stories about a journey, we read Jay-Jay’s book

and then I remembered a book that I had written some years before and I read this to the class too,

and they loved it.

The original story was based on a walk with my class around the neighbourhood of Bewbush, Crawley. The walk had led to map work and sequencing. Then together with the class I wrote an imaginative adventure.

The events we imagined were put into a class book. The book was shared with many classes and it was always a favourite.

Now years later I decided it was time to update, improve and look at publishing the book.

There is indeed a walk around the district of Bewbush. and following the publication of the book I went back to see if and how the neighbourhood had changed.

‘Oh, I see you have written a book without a bus!’ commented a friend.

But, look through the pages and you will see there always has to be a bus!

The neighbourhood of Bewbush was a new estate built in Crawley town in the 1970’s. The area was built without any shops, school or safe places for children to play. It was an area of high need and was supported by a special playbus which offered a much-needed playgroup venue.

I also undertake events and author bookings and love to share my stories. There are also a few more stories in the writing process, with links to real events and buses.

One thought on “A Spooky Tale ~ A Walk With Our Teacher by Sue Wickstead #Blogtour #Review #Giveaway

  1. Thank you for being part of the blog tour for A Spooky Tale and I am glad you enjoyed the story.
    Children have such imagination and my class certainly enjoyed thinking up problems to solve.
    Indeed a walk is good for any time not just for Halloween.
    Although I prefer a bus ride I did enjoy the walk… even if I did go home ill.
