PUBLISHED: 15:00 27 August 2012
A graphic designer with a passion for travel has written her first children’s book, inspired by her two young sons.
Inderjit Puaar, 31, from Manor Park has written and illustrated Bradley the Bus. The book’s main character is a bus which goes on a magical adventure to three countries to find missing pieces of his magic puzzle.
As well as encouraging children to read, the book teaches children about different modes of transport, different countries and cultures as well as stimulating their imagination. Its content and imagery is aimed at four to six-year-olds year and includes road safety advice.
Inderjit, who works as a graphic designer for Newham Council used her extensive experience in design and passion for travel when coming up with the idea for the book. The book was launched at Stratford Library recently.
Inderjit said: “As I am passionate about travel, I wanted to write a book that teaches children about different modes of transport, countries and cultures, as well as stimulating their imagination.
“My main inspiration was my two boys who love buses, puzzles and magic. And the fact I have lived on a main bus route for the past 10 years, means I always have the iconic London red bus in view.
“I am thrilled that my dream of creating a book that my children - and many others will love – has come true. I’m looking forward to everyone joining Bradley the Bus and myself at Stratford for a really special afternoon.”
