Gus & Me: The Story of My Granddad and My First Guitar - Keith Richards, Theodora Richards

Famed rock and roller Keith Richards makes his first foray into children’s literature with Gus and Me (Little, Brown, $18), the charming story of his own introduction to the guitar. As a boy, Keith idolized his grandfather, Gus, and was fascinated by his guitar, which he’d been forbidden to touch until he was older. When he’s finally old enough, his grandfather brings the guitar down and presents it to him, unaware of the impact the instrument will have on Keith’s life. Together with his daughter Theodora Richards’s simple yet evocative artwork, Richards’s story emphasizes his own love of music, as well as the magically childlike feeling of discovery. Ages 4-8. CEB
