Have you ever been on a Playbus?
Not an ordinary bus taking you on a journey, exciting though this is, but a bus stuffed full of toys and imagination!
When my two children were young, they attended a playgroup on such a bus and as a young mum and volunteer I became involved with the project. The bus really got into my blood and became a work of the heart.
Daisy Daydream was the bus I painted for my children and where I became involved. Together with my children, we had a lot of fun.
Following the publication of my first books about Jay-Jay my daughter suggested we needed a book for our bus.
Daisy Daydream is based on a busy London bus.
The number plates on the story buses are real and Daisy's number plate is JJD 261, which was indeed a London Bus.
(The real Daisy was JJK261 - also known as Jay-Jay)
After Daisy's story book was published I felt Daisy needed her own book of rhymes too.
One of our carnival parade themes was 'Nurery Rhymes', this was perfect for Daisy so we decided to take some traditional and new rhymes and add a bus twist.
We added bus tickets with few bus jokes to make you giggle, or groan.
