Gus's Garage

Gus's Garage

By Leo Timmers
Published by Gecko Press

Gus runs a garage and stores all sorts of useless things. It might look like a heap of rubbish but will Gus find use for them somehow?

When Gus' friend Rico comes over with a problem - a seat that is too small on his scooter. Gus finds just the thing to solve it. One by one Gus’s friends bring him their vehicles and 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.

Gus's Garage comes from Belgian illustrator Leo Timmers, and boasts his usual colourful and detailed style. The vehicles Gus creates are mechanical masterpieces, using all types of odds and ends to make the perfect vehicle. The story is a simple one which younger children will adore - especially those that love cars and things on wheels!

Gus's Garage is available to buy now at all good bookshops and online at the Gecko Press website.
