A pig named Gus, who runs a garage, solves everyone’s problems by inventing contraptions with the things he collects. For example, a rhino is driving a motorcycle, but the seat is too small, so Gus uses an old chair he found and attaches it. Gus is kind of like an inventor, and they end up with crazy cars. A walrus drives by in his car, but it’s the middle of summer, so he’s really dry. Gus attaches a bathtub to the roof of his car, and he puts all the levers up there so he can still drive it. There are lots of other funny inventions that I don’t want to give away.
I like the illustrations in this book because you can see the sun reflecting off the things he collects, and the objects are realistic. A bird appears every time a customer does, and usually it pops out of one of the things he’s collected. I like to look for them because sometimes they’re not easy to find because you can only see their head. Gus gets dirtier on every page, and you need to notice it since it’s important at the end of the book. I like to give all the customers funny voices because they’re all different animals. The surprise at the end of the book is funny, but I’m not going to give it away because you’ll have to read it yourself.
