Synopsis

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.
