Jay-Jay and his Island Adventure – Picture Story Book
Jay-Jay the Supersonic Bus is no ordinary bus taking you on a journey. He is a Playbus.
Find out what happens when he is invited to an island where the children had never seen a double-decker bus – and certainly not one full of toys!
This story is based on a real bus which visited towns and villages all over Scotland. The bus journey took it to a remote island on the Shetland Isles where it had to travel by ferry.
The ferry was small and the bus was much bigger than a car!
Having read the first book to children in many schools they would ask, “Is he going to go on any more adventures?”
The second book has finally reached the island and more adventures are planned!
A bus can be an exciting place to travel or even to play on.
It can come to the children full of fun and adventure.
“We wish it was still here,” the children comment.
So even if only in book form, the bus does indeed still exist!
Jay-Jay books come with a FREE 3D bus models to make and colour.

About the Author
Author: Sue Wickstead
A work of the heart. Sue is a teacher and a children’s author..
For over 20 years, alongside her teaching career, she worked with a Children’s Charity, The Bewbush Playbus Association, which led her to write a photographic history book about it.
She soon found that many children had never been on a bus before, let alone a ‘Playbus’ and they wanted to know more, so she decided to write a fictional tale about the first bus, his number plate JJK261 gave him his name.
‘Jay-Jay the Supersonic Bus’ came out in print in 2014. From Fact to fiction the bus journey continues with more stories written and on their way.
In Sue’s role as a Teacher she has been able to share her stories with many children & leave a copy of the first book, ‘Jay-Jay the Supersonic Bus’, in each School that she visits.
The first picture book has led to further bus related stories. Each book has a bus connections as well as links to her teaching career.
