Gus thinks life is boring
In his tiny mushroom town,
Where he lives with his dog Button
On a street of dusty brown.
But just when he at last decides
The place can't get much duller,
Something bright and strange blows in -
And Gus discovers color!
Join Gus and Button as they explore a new land of menacing artichokes, friendly peppers, grumpy pumpkins, and a cornucopia of other surprises... and Gus learns that the difference between a boring world and an exciting one - like the difference between a face and a funny vegetable - is in how you look at it.
Reviews and Awards
"The title only hints at the goofy - dare we say genius - contents of this book, in which fruits and vegetables undergo makeovers that even RuPaul would envy." - Entertainment Weekly
"One Lonely Seas Horse offers proof that there are apparently no limits to the imagination of Joost Elffers and Saxton Freymann..." - The New York Times
"Taking a brilliant advantage of each pumpkin's distinct shape and wrinkles, the authors carve only eyes and mouths, but evoke an astonishing range of expressions and personalities - capped by a populous pumpkin gallery on the endpapers that, alone, is worth the price of admission." - Kirkus Reviews
