Jay-Jay The Supersonic Bus

Jay-Jay The Supersonic Bus Cover

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.

Our Thoughts.

I really enjoyed this book, I liked how this book is clearly the beginning of a series. The book tells the tale of a bus that was found on a scrap yard. One day some people came along and he was pick and renovated into a play bus. This story really captures the imagination of my youngest Melanie. Though at one point Alex was a bit like “they are fitted alot of things on that bus!” This book is ideal for those little ones and a great starting point for hopefully more amazing books to come.

Alex: You liked the book because it tricked me into thinking that the bus was just going to be used at the airport for shuttling passengers 🙂

Melanie: I liked it all.

Sue tells us about herself…..

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.

  1. Thank you for taking part in the book blitz for Jay-Jay the Supersonic bus.
    I am glad you enjoyed the story.
    I was pleased to hear that Alex and Melanie enjoyed it too.
    (The aeroplane in the book was going to me called Alex, but he was edited from the book – my nephew alex was a bit disappointed at the time)
    The bus was indeed fitted with a lot of things and was much loved.
