Mr Gumpy has decided to go for a ride in his motor car. It's a nice day and the sun is shining, so off he goes

Mr Gumpy has decided to go for a ride in his motor car. It's a nice day and the sun is shining, so off he goes. But he only gets as far as the lane before the children, the rabbit, the cat, the dog, the pig, the sheep, the chickens, the calf and the goat ask if they can come along too. As the motor car and its passengers make their way across the field, the weather begins to turn and the rain is soon pouring down. The tyres cannot grip the muddy ground, so Mr Gumpy asks for volunteers to push the car. But everyone has an excuse, until it gets so bad that they all have to get out and help.

When Mr. Gumpy decides to go for a ride in his bright-red car, everyone wants to come along - a rabbit, a cat, a dog, a sheep, chickens, a calf, a goat, and a boy and girl. All right," says Mr. Gumpy. But it will be a squash. So they all squash in and, for a while, chug along happily. Then it starts to rain, and the car becomes stuck in the mud. Who will help Mr. Gumpy push the car out? "Not me," says each passenger.

4 John Burningham books This listing has four different picture books by John Burningham. Gumpy's Motor Car is an ex. library HB with a DJ and mylar covering. Two are ex. library hardbacks, and two are paperbacks. Condition: Good-pages show handling along the bottom edge; a few pages have light soiling; binding tight; a little cornerwear on the covers; DJ shows a little handling along the top edge. Hushabye is an ex. library HB without DJ. In the end, however, they all have to help, and a wonderful time is had by all.

Eventually, the sun shines once more as they drive across the bridge - and there's time for a swim on the way home.

Mr. Gumpy's Motor Car is a fun, whimsical story about just getting along. I love how the main character is happy to put up with his passenger’s character flaws and just go with the flow to enjoy the day and the friendships surrounding him.

it is hard to put a finger on what is so funny and charming in this simple book. But it is awesome. I love it. That's true art. an awesome book I'll keep forever.

I love this book. It's so much fun to read. Was one of my son's favorites as a child (now 33). I remembered the story and repurchased it for another special little boy.

Everyone wants a ride and as one more, and one more get in, you just know something is bound to happen! This story is sure to keep the little ones engaged until the very end!

Mr Gumpy's Motor Car: Book and CDMy daughter's favorite book for quite a long time; she called it "The Rain Book," we think because she was so impressed by the wonderful evocative pictures of the stormy part of the day, just before the car got stuck in the mud. In reading the part about the efforts the children and animals made to push the car out of the mud, my husband took great liberties, adding his own verbs to the list in the book: "they pushed and shoved and heaved and . . . ." A perfect book for a small person to memorize and "read" aloud, long before he or she can actually read. And a pleasure for the parents as well.

Aiata
A fabulous book for any young boy or girl and his or her parents. Like Mr Gumpy's Outing, the pictures are marvelous, the story simple yet captivating. A must have for any child's bookshelf

Own Mr. Gumpy's Outing in hardcover. That first book in this is the baby's favorite. Buying second one and first one in the series in paperback to pack for traveling.

The quality of this book was disappointing. Besides being a great story the illustrations are what make this book special. Unfortunately the copy of these illustrations in the copy I received were weak colored and pencil lines mostly faded.
