Gus & Me – a book review

We’ve recently received a lovely book to read from Orion Books called Gus & Me.  It’s written by someone rather famous for another talent – playing the guitar with a band you may have heard of – The Rolling Stones.

Gus & Me

Gus & Me is written by Keith Richards and includes wonderful illustrations by his daughter Theodora throughout.  The book tells the story of Keith and his inspirational Granddad Gus. It’s Gus that shared his love of music and instruments with Keith as a child, and taught him how to play his first guitar.

Gus & Me

It’s been a lovely story to read to Monkey as he’s loved the adventures that Keith and Gus went on.  He also loves his Gramps so can relate to that side of the book.  For me, this is a lovely read, it’s sentimental and full of warmth.  It’s become a favourite here.

There’s a lovely touch at the end of the book;  a little bio of Keith Richards and photos of him and his family.  The hardback book is currently on offer on Amazon for £11.99 if you wanted to grab a bargain – my affiliate link is below.

disclaimer:  we were sent this book in exchange for an honest review
