Gus and Grandpa

Claudia Mills; Illustrated by Catherine Stock

Farrar, Straus and Giroux (BYR)

The first book in a series starring a boy and his jaunty grandpa

Gus and Grandpa make their debut in three lively and tender stories. In the first, Gus makes a mess while trying to feed Grandpa's dog, Skipper (Grandpa makes him clean it up). In the second, Grandpa loses his car at the mall (Gus finds it). In the third, Gus and Grandpa share a birthday party and exchange presents (Grandpa gives Gus a dog-food scoop for neater feedings, and Gus gives Grandpa a ball of yarn to help him keep track of the car). Claudia Mills's Gus and Grandpa, a pair whose enthusiasm and affection will captivate beginning readers, are brought to life by Catherine Stock in sparkling, sun-drenched pictures.

REVIEWS

Praise for Gus and Grandpa

"This wry trio of tales features an engagingly imperfect boy and his engagingly imperfect grandfather...Accommodating beginning readers, Mills's controlled and considerable repetition are also used to comic effect...A witty, warm offering." --Publishers Weekly

"Gus enjoys spending time with his grandfather, whether he's helping Grandpa track down his car in the parking lot...or teaching Grandpa's dog some tricks. [The stories] show the pair's close, loving relationship." - The Horn Book Guide

"The simple, lovely words in short lines will help beginning readers, and Stock's line-and-wash illustrations are filled with light and love and commotion." - Booklist
