Long before there was a band, there was a boy: a young Keith Richards, who was introduced to the joy of music through his beloved granddad, Theodore Augustus Dupree, affectionately known as "Gus," who was in a jazz big band and is the namesake of Keith's daughter, Theodora Dupree Richards. Gus & Me offers a rare and intimate look into the childhood of the legendary Keith Richards through this poignant and inspiring story that is lovingly illustrated with Theodora Richards's exquisite pen-and-ink collages. This unique autobiographical picture book honors the special bond between a grandfather and grandson and celebrates the artistic talents of the Richards family through the generations. It also includes selected photographs from the Richards family collection and an exclusive audio CD featuring bonus content.

Great Man - Great Book

Keith's first children's book is absolutely wonderful, as are Theodora's illustrations. This is a great book written by a great man who has a great family. Your family will enjoy the book & CD too. How cool is it to play the CD and have Keith Richards read the book to your children? Very Cool! Thanks Keith & Theodora!

Love it!

Keith Richards reading a storybook is brilliant in his soft British accent. Theodora & Keith together makes this book extra special. I pre-ordered it & it was worth the wait.

Excellent book!

I love this book! I love how Keith Richards explains his heartwarming bond with his grandfather and how his journey as a musician began. The pictures by his daughter, Theodora Richards, are beautiful, and the CD of Keith reading the story and playing guitar is awesome!

A Lovely Book

I was looking forward very much to this book coming out. As a collector of all things Rolling Stones this is a wonderful addition. The story is sweet & such a fine tribute to Keith's grandfather who started him out on his musical life journey.
