When the children went on a walk to look around the district it led to the class writing a shared story.
This is a story full of imagination. Where did the class go and what did they see?
What could possibly happen?
Many years later, and with a few changes, their story was re-written.

About the Author
In addition I also worked with a Children's Charity. The charity was a Playbus, which was a mobile project taking play to the children wherever they might be. The Playbus was much loved and many children, now grown up have very fond memories. My involvement led me to write a photographic history book about it.
In the many school I visited, as a cover teacher, I have been able to talk about and share the bus experience.
The children asked many questions and it led to story telling, which led to the story writing.
My children enjoyed their Playbus experiences too and have fond memories.
The original bus was a project funded by the Queen's Silver Jubilee Community Awards and it was a pioneering project.
Many other bus projects were seen in action across the country.
I have always written stories or told stories to the classes I have taught, I decided to write down a few adventures.
After sharing the first story with many children the tale was ready to publish.
Bewbush Playbus is the real life bus while 'Jay-Jay the Supersonic Bus' is the fictional tale. From Fact to fiction the bus journey continues with more stories written and on their way.

I read this to my grandchildren (3 & 6) and they both enjoyed it for different reasons. The 3 year old is infatuated with monsters right now, she loved seeing what was coming next. Even though they were not all monsters, she loved them. She also repeated the last line on each page, "That's why we didn't feel well!" When we finished, she asked me to read it again and was thrilled when her brother got home from school, so we could read it again with him. The 6 year old loved that they were on a walk with their teacher and he was fascinated with the map. After we read the story, I had to go through it page by page so he could compare it to the map. The illustrations were amazing. They were large and colourful with a lot of detail. This makes for a great Halloween story, but would also be a fun book to read with students before going on a neighbourhood walk. I definitely recommend this one to families, schools and public libraries. I received a copy of this book from Rachel's Random Resources, upon request. The rating, ideas and opinions shared are my own.
Reviewed by Vernita Naylor for Readers' Favorite A Spooky Tale: A Walk With Our Teacher by Sue Wickstead is a great book to help pique your child’s imagination. Children of all ages will enjoy reading through the pages of this picture book. What originally started out as a project over 10 years ago, with a teacher and her students on their walk around the neighborhood, turns into a world of adventure. The beautiful illustrations and the insights of the children help to display a child’s imagination. Walk through the neighborhood where you will see and experience so many things. On the journey you will walk past many things; from a school, a park, the church, and the nursery school to a bridge where you will encounter a wide array of animals and creatures from a bear and a dragon to a dinosaur. What great fun your child will have walking through the neighborhood with the students and their teacher. This book was cute and fun to read. I'm sure that it was just as fun to create for the teacher and the students. It is always great to discover new, engaging and exciting books. Children will enjoy reading this book just like I did. As an educational book, young readers will learn how to read maps and learn about trails. This book stimulates the mind and cognitive abilities to help children to dream and visualize the world around them. If you're looking for a book that your child would want to read over and over again, and maybe share with their friends, this is it.
