From Publishers Weekly

“Mr. Gumpy's little scow becomes a miniature ark when he takes two children and one each of the various domestic animals for a ride. . . . The water appears so warmly inviting, and the tea they all share so satisfying, that the promise of the first glowing page is fulfilled. Burningham's sketchy yellow lines make the sun shine on his pages, and his animals--sometimes jaunty, more often appealingly hesitant--are his alone, unostentatiously distinctive. Mr. Gumpy has bumbling charm, and his outing is an unqualified pleasure.” ―Kirkus Reviews
“A real charmer of a picture book for the very young.” ―Booklist
“Mr. Grumpy's Outing is out of sight.” ―School Library Journal--This text refers to the school edition.

When my husband and I adopted our daughter, the book was given to her.
My nephew and his wife just had a son and I sent this book to them.
The children loved having the book read to them.
We we glad to send this book to the next generation.
