The fifth book in the beloved Gus and Grandpa series
 
Gus is unimpressed when Ryan coolly stops his sleek five-speed bike with the hand brake. But he's totally nonplussed when Daddy buys him a bicycle like Ryan's. Gus will never give up his training wheels. Enter Grandpa, who wisely removes Gus from the neighborhood and curious eyes for practice, digs out Daddy's old bike for the occasion, and patiently holds that bike as Gus rides it around and around. Gus's ultimate triumph belongs to Grandpa as well, and will be shared enthusiastically by reluctant riders and their supportive families. In Gus and Grandpa and the Two-Wheeled Bike, Claudia Mills and Catherine Stock contribute a gem to the bike-riding genre.

The tenth book in Claudia Mills' beloved series
 
For Gus, the longest half hour of the day is spent practicing the piano. Why can't he be outside, shooting hoops with Ryan Mason? Even more painful are the lessons: Mrs. Moore complains about Gus's squishy fingers. But most painful of all is the piano recital. Gus has to play a piece called "The Horse Race," and he's not sure he will remember it.
 
As a child, Grandpa played the violin, so he knows exactly how Gus feels. Grandpa also knows about something Gus will love—making music with others—and once again he shows Gus the way in a story with pictures that "reflect the sunny warmth of loving connections passed across generations" (Booklist).

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.
