* "[The story] is all told so naturally and with such sweet verve that readers may not notice that this is the legendary guitarist of the Rolling Stones. The vibrant and evocative pictures are done by Richards' daughter...Over swathes of rich color she lays pen-and-ink drawings of figures and instruments, architectural details, free-floating musical notes--and cakes and tea things--that brilliantly carry the power of love and music into visual imagery. A CD of the author reading the story and playing a bit of "Malagueña" is included, and it is pretty wonderful, too. A beautiful example of artistic bookmaking, a story of family love and lore, and the magic of music personified in a way that's utterly accessible to children--and their dazzled parents."―Kirkus, starred review

* "Theodora Richards, Keith's daughter, contributes fluid, inked sketches and other freestyle graphic elements that exude love and spontaneity. The accompanying CD proves Richards is as adept at telling bedtime stories as he is performing on stage."―Publishers Weekly, starred review

"This rocks, though the effect is more like being rocked in a grandparent's arms."―Booklist

"Beautifully told."―The New York Times

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Keith Richards is a musician, singer, songwriter, and founding member of the rock band the Rolling Stones. Widely considered one of the best guitarists in the world, he has a collection of over 350 guitars. His memoir, Life, received unanimous critical acclaim and was a #1 New York Times bestseller. Mr. Richards has five children and five grandchildren.

Theodora Dupree Richards, named after her great-grandfather Theodore Augustus Dupree, is an artist and a daughter of Keith Richards and Patti Hansen. To research the images for this project, she traveled to the Richards family home in Dartford, England, and consulted family and historical photographs of her father's childhood era. This is her first book.

Not really a book at all and expensive. In my Kindle edition the pages don't seem to fit the screen and what few words there are are often unreadable.

HASH(0x9d23a078) von 5 Sternen Grandpas rock! Great book, beautiful story. 9. September 2014
Von Fan of Tick Tock - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Who'd have thought the wildman, who gave us When the Whip Comes Down and Let’s Spend the Night Together, could also tell such a gentle, evocative tale? Keith Richards writes about his grandfather Gus — a bandleader whose house was filled with “instruments and cake” — and the meandering walks they’d take together through the streets of London.

Stones fans will love Gus & Me because it reveals how young Keef developed his love for music. But even if the book wasn’t about Richards (and even if the playful/mischievous illustrations hadn’t been drawn by his daughter and even if the accompanying CD didn’t feature Keith reading the story in the perfect bedtime voice), it’s simply a wonderful book for children, a book about the lasting gift that a grandfather gave to his grandson.

HASH(0x9d251618) von 5 Sternen A love song.... 10. September 2014
Von John From SC - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
A wonderful, touching tale of the love between a Grandfather and Grandson that led to a shared passion for music. I had read the story in Keith's autobiography Life, but the addition of his daughter Theodora's (who is named for Theodore Augustus Dupree, the titular Gus) illustrations adds to the family bond evoked by the story. Ordered a copy for my Grandniece and one for myself; my only regret is I don't get a copy of the CD with Keith reading the story since I got the Kindle edition...maybe Quinn and I can share! If you are a fan of music of any kind and wish to pass that love along, buy this book. If you have grandchildren or grandparents whom you love (or loved) and wish to pass that love along, buy this book. And if you love Keef, definitely BUY THIS BOOK!

A warm and loving tribute to his grandfather who not only introduced Keith to the guitar, but also taught him the valuable lesson of working hard for what you want. I love it!

HASH(0x9d24bb4c) von 5 Sternen Beautiful and emotional book in which children will fully enjoy 10. September 2014
Von Helpful Advice - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
‘Gus & Me’ is freshly released story for children written by Keith Richards, member of mega popular rock band ‘The Rolling Stones’ – a story that will touch reader with warmth and emotions which emanates from its pages.

The book is illustrated by Keith daughter Theodora who precisely got her name after special person in author’s life - Theodore Augustus Dupree, called Gus – Keith grandfather. Theodora manages through her illustrations to evoke Keith childhood, not using too much detail in her drawings but still succeeding to skillfully set the scene in which action takes place.

For those who read ‘Life’ – other Keith Richards’s book and one of the best autobiographies especially when it comes to rock stars - story of Gus will be familiar. A man who shared Keith passion for music and certainly can be credited for fact the author's name today is known all across the globe. The author tells story in which his grandfather and he due to common interest for music and family bond will together embark on a journey through the world of music.

‘Gus & Me’ is equally beautiful book for those interested in music or just want to read touching family story, and it should be also emphasized that physical copy in this case have extra value compared to e-book because of enclosed CD which will enable reader to enjoy listening to Keith himself reading the book.

Therefore, if you are a parent who search for your child story about the love for music and especially if you are a grandfather looking for some perfect gift for your beloved grandchild, look no further, because ‘Gus & Me’ is beautiful and emotional book in which children will fully enjoy.
