Mr.Gumpy's Motor Car by John Burningham

Book Description

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

Book Review: Mr.Gumpy's Motor Car by John Burningham - Reviewed by (27 Jun 2013)

Mr Gumpy's Motor Car by John Burningham does not date despite being quite an old book.

Me Grump set off in his gar with his friends, the car is quite over crowded and when they get stuck in the mud, the fun and mishaps start to happen.

There is allot going on in this book and many things to like. The story is simple and there are no over complicated messages by the author.

The illustrations are classically drawn and perhaps showing there age a little, but there are plenty of colorful animals to look at and a classic car, a great read.
