This is a children’s novel about a young boy named Gus. Gus has a big family and feels that his family are a bit too much for him at times. Sometimes, when his family are loud, or his brother’s are playing jokes, Gus wishes that he could be an only child, that he didn’t have such a large family.
On a family camping trip, he finds himself lost in the woods; left behind.
Be careful what you wish for….
“…Author Rachel McGrath has written a charming story for young readers in Mud on Your Face. Life always looks greener on the other side of the fence, but this story is a great learning tool for young readers to appreciate that perhaps the ‘other side’ isn’t that much better after all. A wonderful, colorfully illustrated story about appreciating what you have and to be careful what you wish for. Beautiful and poignant, a must-read for young and old alike…” Reviewed By Emily-Jane Hills Orford for Readers’ Favorite
