Review quote

"A real charmer of a picture book for the very young."--ALA "Booklist" "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.... Mr. Gumpy has bumbling charm, and his outing is an unqualified pleasure." --"Kirkus Reviews"
