Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!

Jay-Jay and the Carnival by Sue Wickstead #Review #Children’s #Giveaway #BlogTour

Read on to discover another story in the adventures of Jay-Jay, the play bus and keep going to learn more about Sue Wickstead and details of a rafflecopter giveaway associated with this blog tour – good luck to all who enter it!

 

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:

This is another delightful, colourful book in this brilliant children’s series about Jay-Jay, a play bus. In this story, Jay-Jay is to participate in the town’s carnival but experiences problems en route and surprises, too.

It is another heartwarming story that children will find easy to relate to and could easily be used by parents and teachers to help promote discussions about carnivals, fancy dress, people who help us and so much more!

The illustrations are bright and attractive. They’re very detailed, with many things being portrayed in them that help children engage with the book and give additional stimuli for discussions.

I’ve enjoyed sharing every book in this series that I’ve had the pleasure to read and this is no exception. I have no hesitation in highly recommending them all!

I requested and was gifted a paperback copy of this book and this is my honest review after choosing to read it.

Author Bio

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.
