Gus’s workshop is chockful of useless odds and ends. But when his friend Rico comes over with a problem—his scooter seat is way too small for a rhino—Gus finds just the thing to solve it.
One by one Gus’s friends bring him their vehicles and Gus solves their troubles with ingenious solutions—a cooling system made with a fridge that doubles as ice-cream machine, a burst of speed from a rocket blaster.
Soon the workshop is almost empty, but the last scraps might be just enough to solve Gus’s own problem at the end of a long day.
