Gus's Garage

$19.50 NZD

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.

Leo Timmers at his best: effortlessly simple text, intricately detailed illustrations, and vehicles galore.
