No matter how old and grubby they are by now, I simply can’t get myself to throw out my two favourite childhood toys, a soft blue bunny with one twisted ear and a sleeping baby doll whose arms are slowly falling off. Childhood toys hold so many memories and emotions, no wonder we tend to hold on to them as we get older. Take Guff, a cheeky fabric friend like no other captured by the talented Aaron Blabey:
Thoroughly loved and tad scruffy from all the cuddles and laundry cycles, cheeky monster Guff (RRP $16.99) is irreplaceable. He follows his owner everywhere, bringing not only comfort and reassurance but also cheeky adventures and mysterious disappearances. Thankfully he always show up.. after all, what would you do without your Guff?
Featuring gorgeous illustrations in Aaron Blabey’s signature style, accompanied by simple text, Guff is the perfect picture book for young readers with a favourite cuddly toy, and everyone else who still cherishes their childhood friend.
