Sparky is a Playbus just like Jay-Jay the Supersonic Bus and Daisy Daydream and just like Jay-Jay and Daisy, Sparky was a real Playbus too. Now she has a fictional tale of her own.
The Real Sparky
Sparky the Dragon Bus, JGA 199N, was a project in Glasgow offering play opportunities to disabled children and their families.
It was a unique Playbus containing many special features, such as a chairlift from the lower deck, allowing users an access to the upper deck.
At the rear was an emergency exit slide. The slide started from the top deck with a large, soft mat on the ground to ensure safe landing.
Sparky encouraged many children to come along to the play scheme where they played alongside children of all abilities.
Sparky the Dragon Bus was quickly recognised for its valuable service, and even received a royal visit from Princess Anne.

About the Author
Sue once worked with a play charity which operated on a double-decker bus. This led her to write the photographic history book about the project. The 'Bewbush Playbus' book was published in 2012.
Sue then began to write a fictional tale about the bus. 'Jay-Jay the Supersonic Bus', his number plate JJK261 gave him his name and has now been followed by more picture books which all indeed have a bus connection as well as links to her teaching journey.
