Review: Jay-Jay the Supersonic Bus

Jay-Jay The Supersonic Bus

About The Book

Jay-Jay the bus is rescued from the dirty scrap yard, where he was sadly gathering dust and cobwebs. Feeling nervous yet excited, he is taken to an airport where he is magically transformed into a ‘Playbus’ full of toys, games and adventure.
A fictional tale based on a real life bus ‘Supersonic’, which flew in the imaginations of the many young children who visited it.

Book Beginning

"This one! This is the bus we want!"
It had been a while since Jay-Jay had felt wanted. He remembered how he had once been just an ordinary bus taking passengers on their many journeys. JJK 261 Route B

The Friday #56

"He had been invited to Buckingham Palace where he was going to receive a special award for all of his hard work."


Saved from a distressing situation, Jay-Jay overhears that the deal is complete. No, he won't be broken up into pieces. He's happy to know he'll no longer be lonely in the scrap yard again. He has felt in-significant for quite sometime now staying in a place where old buses go. Things are different now because he has been taken to an airport where exciting changes are magically beginning to transform Jay-Jay into a Playbus. The two things close to Jay-Jay's heart, children and the love of playing, give him renewed purpose. Come along for the journey and read about tea sets and dress up clothes. Plus, there's toys and games and a train track inside. The illustrations are warm and charming. You'll discover the newly painted bus with bright colors has a new name, Jay-Jay The Supersonic Bus and he proudly receives an award from the Queen. New imaginative adventures begin with a play group for the younger children on the famous playbus. Such a nice story. My grandchildren love it!

5/5 stars. Recommend to friends.

My grandson is 7 and is a good reader. He enjoyed the book and could easily read it to himself. He chose to read aloud to his younger brother who kept pointing to the bus!
