Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

At last, a board book edition of this beloved preschool story.

One sunny day Mr. Gumpy decides to take a ride in his small boat. It's a perfect idea for a lovely summer day, and soon he is joined by children, a rabbit, a cat, a pig, and a host of other friends. But when the goat kicks, the chickens flap, the dog teases the cat and the children squabble — the boat tips into the water and everyone tumbles out. No one minds getting wet on such a nice day, though, especially since Mr. Gumpy invites everyone to his house for tea.

A colorful new design and sturdy board book format bring this beloved classic to a whole new audience of children.

 
Mr. Gumpy's Outing is the winner of the 1972 Boston Globe - Horn Book Award for Picture Books and a 1971 New York Times Book Review Best Illustrated Book of the Year.

Synopsis:

While enjoying a sunny day in his small boat, Mr. Gumpy is inundated by rowdy friends who cause a spill. No one minds getting wet on a nice day, though, especially since Mr. Gumpy invites them to his house for tea. Full color.
