"Gus so beautifully illustrates to every reader - both young and old - how friendship is an essential part of life, regardless of age. Gus shows us how over time, friendships can grow, evolve and adapt, but have no less meaning or value to us, whether we are very young, or very very old. A celebration of how much having people who care about each others means, both between the ages and through the ages.” Dr Stephanie Ward
