Jay-Jay the Supersonic Bus is a Playbus.
Once an ordinary bus left in a scrap-yard he has been converted ready for children to play on.
He is able to visit children wherever they are.
Upstairs the children can play with toys, read books or dress up in fancy dress clothes.
Downstairs the children can paint or draw or even play with sand.
A bus full of fun and imagination.
In his island Adventure Jay-Jay goes on a small ferry across to an island where the children have never seen a double-decker bus and certainly not one full of toys and games.

About the Author
Offering to repaint the bus and against all the odds the bus was given a new bright livery and was able to proudly lead the local Crawley Carnival.
My interest in the Playbus continued and for many years I became actively involved in raising funds to enable the organisation to buy a new bus and convert it into a suitable and safe play area for children.
I was involved in promotion for the project and kept an exhibition of photographs to help further with the projects development and funding causes. The bus really got into my blood and became very much a work of the heart.
I had trained and worked as a primary school teacher but left full-time teaching in order to write a photographic history book about the Playbus project.
As a visiting supply teacher, I had the opportunity to visit many schools in Sussex and Surrey (England) and told the children about the Playbus.
What it was and what it did. The children were both interested and curious and asked lots of questions. This led me to write the first part of its 'Supersonic' journey as a 'Young Fiction Picture Book'.
With more bus stories planned to be developed the bus journey continues.
