Today I am extremely excited to be co-writing a blog post with my daughter, Amelia, for the next exciting book by Sue Wickstead, called Daisy Daydream the Nursery Rhyme Bus.
About the Book
Daisy Daydream the Nursery Rhyme Bus
Daisy was a happy red bus who loved travelling the busy streets of London.
When newer and shinier buses came along, the older buses like Daisy began to disappear.
Would Daisy become one of the forgotten buses, or was something else planned for her?

Our whole family really loved Jayjay the playbus when we read that series earlier this year so jumped at the chance to read the next book by Sue, this time about a bus called Daisy Daydream, but follows a similar pattern as the previous books. JayJay even gets a brief mention and cameo in this book, which Amelia loved.
The book follows Daisy as she is getting older and being replaced by newer buses. She worries that she will be forgotten and sent to the scrap yard like buses before her, but a different life is set for her, she is to be turned into a nursery rhyme bus for children to play on.
As with the Jayjay books this one has lovely images throughout which grabbed Amelia’s attention and the storyline was short enough for her not to get bored on each page.
Overall this is yet another great book by Sue and we can’t wait to read more by her.

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.
