This title is for the PARKSIDE book fair – it will NOT be shipped – it will be donated directly to the classroom. 

Mr. Gumpy lives by a river. One sunny day he decides to take a ride in his small boat.

It is such a perfect idea, for such a perfect summer day, that he soon has company: first the children, then the rabbit, the cat, the dog, the pig, the sheep, the chickens, and still others until-- Mr. Gumpy's outing comes to an inevitable but not unhappy, conclusion.

With Mr. Gumpy's Outing, John Burningham became the first artist ever to win England's Kate Greenaway Medal twice. In America, the book was a Boston Globe-Horn Book Award winner and an American Library Association Notable Children's Book of 1971.
