When the teacher decided to take the class out on a walk the children did not want to go … But… What could possibly go wrong? why did the class not feel well? Read the book to find out.
I love this author’s books and I was delighted to be able to get my hands on a copy of “A Spooky Tale” – I thought it was a thoroughly enjoyable read and I thought that the images were great!
I loved how the story was written and the repetitive nature and that the one main sentence was repeated at the end of each set of pages, my daughter is only young but she loves books that do this as it means she can join in even at a young age.
This is definitely one that we will be reading again and I loved the different adventures that they had to the way, it made for an exciting read and one that keeps you on your toes!
It is 4 stars from me for this one and it is another brilliant story from Sue Wickstead! Highly recommended and a perfect Halloween read!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
I am an author and a teacher and have written six children’s picture books, all with a bus included somewhere.
Having been able to share my first book, ‘Jay-Jay the Supersonic Bus’, it was time to think about writing a book for younger readers.
While visiting a local school the children were writing stories about a journey, we read Jay-Jay’s book and then I remembered a book that I had written some years before and I read this to the class too, and they loved it.
The original story was based on a walk with my class around the neighbourhood of Bewbush, Crawley. The walk had led to map work and sequencing. Then together with the class I wrote an imaginative adventure.
The events we imagined were put into a class book. The book was shared with many classes and it was always a favourite.
Now years later I decided it was time to update, improve and look at publishing the book.
There is indeed a walk around the district of Bewbush. and following the publication of the book I went back to see if and how the neighbourhood had changed.
‘Oh, I see you have written a book without a bus!’ commented a friend.
But, look through the pages and you will see there always has to be a bus!
The neighbourhood of Bewbush was a new estate built in Crawley town in the 1970’s. The area was built without any shops, school or safe places for children to play. It was an area of high need and was supported by a special playbus which offered a much-needed playgroup venue.
I also undertake events and author bookings and love to share my stories. There are also a few more stories in the writing process, with links to real events and buses.
