Gumpy's Outing, became the first artist ever to win England's Kate Greenaway Medal twice.
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.
"Come for a ride another day," says Mr. Gumpy at the book's end.
