From the Publisher
Editors Note "Mr. Gumpy's scow becomes a miniature ark when he takes two children and one each of various domestic animals for a ride".--Kirkus Reviews. Full color., Boston Globe/Horn Book Award; Kate Greenaway Medal; New York Times Best Illustrated Children's Book; Parents' Choice Award for Paperbacks.
Annotation Mr. Gumpy's boat gets too crowded with children and animals--and a peaceful boat ride turns chaotic. Color illustrations accompany the text. Named one the Best Illustrated Books of 1971 by the NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW.
First Line This is Mr. Gumpy. Mr. Gumpy owned a boat and his house was by a river.
Annotation 3 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.
