Gus’s Garage

Prize of the Children’s Jury 2017 (Flanders)
Book of the Month May 2018 (Germany)
Prix Escapages 2019 (France)

Gus is a cheerful do-it-yourselfer. Early in the morning, he arrives at his garage, where everyone comes by with a different problem: Rico has backache, Janne thinks it’s too hot, Walter misses the sea. Don’t panic: Gus always comes up with something! Using an old scooter, a discarded bathtub and a worn-out
fridge, he makes the most amazing vehicles in everyone’s size.

Press on Gus’s Garage:
‘The most magical picture books tell their story in images, as much as in words. Gus’s Garage, by Leo Timmers, is the best example of seamless storytelling I have seen recently, joining Timmers’ other wonderful books for early picture book readers.’ – booksellers NZ
‘Leo Timmers, creator of picture books, again steels many hearts.’ – De Morgen
‘This is an amusing book to reread, since even the smallest details are assigned a narrative purpose. Clearly, one animal’s clutter is another pig’s livelihood in this
buoyant, rhyming tale.’ – The New York Times
