Gus is a seven-year-old boy who comes from a very large family with eight brothers and sisters.
Sometimes Gus feels left out, picked on, or even forgotten by his family. He wonders what life might be like if he had no brothers or sisters, and if he was an only child.
On a family camping trip Gus finds himself lost in the woods, left behind by his family.
A different adventure takes place for Gus with a strange new friend.
Be careful what you wish for....
This is cute story written from the perspective of a 7 year old boy who is the 8th of 9 children all named in alphabetical order. Interestingly the boy's relationship with his brothers (mainly revealed through his own thoughts of them) was the main topic of conversation with my children. It made a good car listen for our Saturday errands.
