Gus & Waldo are penguins and they are happily in love but the ups and downs of modern life just seem to be getting in the way. It all seems to get too much and they worry that everything’s over – but surely it can’t be?
2298322This book makes me smile, and laugh out loud, every time I pick it up – which is surprisingly often. It is short and sweet and sits on the bookshelf in a place that is easy to just grab and flick through. It makes me feel good about the world and it never fails to make me happy regardless of how much of a terrible day I’m having.
The pictures are bold and simple but very clever and have lots of funny little details, the text is easy to read and says just enough for the story to work and the whole thing is the perfect size to shove in your pocket if you want to.
Gus & Waldo’s Book Of Love is reassuring and amusing and one of my most loved books of all. Something I never thought I’d every say about a quirky little picture book about a pair of gay penguins, but it’s true. If you don’t have a copy on your bookshelf then you should get one, or at least borrow a copy and have a read.
The story is simple and sweet but what I loved most was the cool imagery and the humour. I've seen some Gus and Waldo cartoons on the web and they are better than South Park!
