  • Product Description

    In Gus’s Garage, one by one Gus’s friends bring him their vehicles. Gus solves their troubles with ingenious solutions—a cooling system made with a fridge that doubles as ice-cream machine, a burst of speed from a rocket blaster.

    Soon the workshop is almost empty, but the last scraps might be just enough to solve Gus’s own problem at the end of a long day.

    1. :

      Clearly, one animal’s clutter is another pig’s livelihood in this buoyant, rhyming tale.

    2. :

      One of the things that I love the most about Leo’s illustrations are the vibrant colours that he uses. His illustrations seem to shine on the pages.

    3. :

      Warm, beautifully crafted and stacks of recycled fun, it’s always a pleasure to see what Leo Timmers will get up to next.

    4. :

      An excellent children’s story where the pictures tell their own story and the rhyming sentences make it fun and entertaining. We loved it.

    5. :

      Leo Timmer’s brightly-coloured illustrations are eye-catching and humorous. He highlights the individual aspects of the animal characters finding ways to cope in an urban environment. Several birds in the background provide a sub-story of their own as they watch Gus go about his work. There’s a wealth of detail in the assortment of tools and materials that he puts to good use.

    6. :

      The most magical picture books tell their story in images, as much as in words. Gus’s Garage, by Leo Timmers, is the best example of seamless storytelling I have seen recently, joining Timmers’ other wonderful books for early picture book readers.

    7. :

      I highly recommend this book and I know you will be thrilled with Leo’s fabulous acrylic illustrations and the witty details he’s included into each one. “Gus’s Garage” is a book not to be missed.
