When Rico the rhino arrives on his moped, he can barely fit on the tiny little seat. Not a problem--hey presto! Gus attaches an old armchair and Rico is one happy rhino with a comfy bottom.
When Gina giraffe drives up in her convertible with a rather chilly neck, Gus can absolutely sold her problem. And what of Miss P the penguin whose retro car lacks the air conditioning she so requires? No problemo! There's use in an old pink fridge, yet.
I love the recycling theme in this book. It's a heck of a lot of fun to see what creative solution Gus will come up with for each of his problem-ridden friends.
Rhyming text and stunningly-crafted illustrations are a real treat for readers of all ages, as is the smile-inducing ending that sees Gus solve his own filthy-from-a-long-day-at-work problem.
Warm, beautifully crafted and stacks of recycled fun, it's always a pleasure to see what Leo Timmers will get up to next,
