Daisy Daydream The Nursery Rhyme Bus by Sue Wickstead #Review #Giveaway

I am delighted to welcome Sue Wickstead's picture book, Daisy Daydream- The Nursery Rhyme Bus to Cat and Mouse Reading today. Today, this picture book for 5-9 year olds is hosting a Giveaway. Details on how to enter are at the foot of this post.   

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?

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.

Thanks to Sue Wickstead and Rachel of Rachel's Random Resources for a copy of the book and a place on the tour.

I would say that this latest book in Sue Wickstead's series of pictures books is my favourite so far. It is ideal for sharing with a young reader. It has some marvellous illustrations and text which is spread out clearly and logically. The story is gently told and is right on the money for its intended age group. I particularly like the details in the illustrations of the bus with its links to nursery rhymes.

    Happiness is threaded throughout the story and there is a real joyful feel to book. Bring on the next one!

Cat and Mouse say; Recycle and have a second chance!
