From the Publisher:
When Mr. Gumpy decides to take a ride down the river, all the children and animals beg to join him on his excursion
On a lovely sunny day, a man named Mr. Gumpy sets off on a boat outing. Soon, he meets two children who ask if they can join him, and Mr. Gumpy agrees--as long as the children don't squabble. As the ride continues, Mr. Gumpy picks up a variety of other creatures, giving each an appropriate plea for proper behavior: the rabbit is told not to hop, the cat not to chase the rabbit, the dog not to tease the cat, the pig not to muck about, the sheep not to bleat, the chickens not to flap, the cow not to trample things, and the goat not to kick. All goes well, until the goat kicks...and sets off a rather wet chain of events. Illustrated with B&W and color drawings, MR. GUMPY'S OUTING was named one the Best Illustrated Books of 1971 by the New York Times Book Review.
