Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It's a pleasant day, so Mr. Gumpy decides to go for a boat ride. Each barnyard animal begs to join him, and Mr. Gumpy agrees-as long as each behaves! Two children join the fun, and as soon as the boat is launched, everyone does exactly what Mr. Gumpy asked them not to do. The result? Splash! This tale fits right into the toddler's sense of humor.
 
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.
