Meet Gus. Gus is a grumpy dog, in fact he may just be the grumpiest dog in town. Gus doesn’t like much of anything – he doesn’t like being petted, he doesn’t like going for walks, and he most certainly doesn’t like making new friends.
So, what will happen when a new puppy arrives, and Gus’s world is turned upside down?
This is Gus is a new children’s picture book written and illustrated by Chris Chatterton. It’s a heartwarming story about grumpy Gus, who likes sausages but doesn’t like to share. Except we soon discover that Gus has a soft spot for the new puppy and that he will learn to share.
Your children will giggle at grumpy Gus and how the new puppy wiggles his way into Gus’s heart. It won’t take long for them to fall in love with Gus, despite his bad moods, and this will help to teach us about friendship and learning to compromise…and that we all can have Gus days too.
This is Gus is available from book stores and online retailers for a recommended retail price of R155. It’s recommended for children aged three to five years of age.
