Sue Wickstead is a teacher and an author living in West Sussex. She writes children’s picture books with a bus theme as well as links to her teaching career.

Sue once worked with a mobile charity called the Bewbush Playbus and was asked to write a photographic history book about it. This has now led to fictional tales about buses.
Sue began to write a fictional bus tale following questions from children.
The children would ask:
‘What a Playbus?
What does a Playbus do?’
Why/how is it different from an ordinary bus?’

‘Jay-Jay the Supersonic Bus’, is the first of the fictional tales and was a finalist in the ‘Wishing Shelf Book Awards’ 2018.
This story has been followed by other picture story books. which all indeed have a bus included somewhere.
