Jay-Jay and the Carnival by Sue Wickstead

Thank You to Rachel from Rachel's random resources and author Sue Wickstead for providing me copy of Jay-Jay and the Carnival and providing me opportunity to participate in this blog tour.


Jay-Jay and the Carnival
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

Jay-Jay and the Carnival is a great book for young children. I read this book to my younger cousins who fully enjoyed the story. This Book is about a bus called Jay-Jay which is a playbus in the carnival. The Book is interesting for young readers and full of lovely illustrations. I would recommend this book to all young children.

About the Author

I am a teacher and an author and have currently written six children’s picture books with a bus theme.
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.
