A brand new and final adventure for Mr Gumpy from the late picture-book legend, John Burningham
Mr Gumpy is off on an adventure! This time he’s rescuing a rhino who’s lost its parents… But growing rhinos needs lots of food. Will Charlie the rhino and Mr Gumpy manage to make a happy home together?
A madcap adventure for children, adults and rhinos alike.
Praise for Mr Gumpy’s Outing – winner of the Kate Greenaway Medal"
“A story of real drama observed with gentle humour”
“With the classic mix of soft sepia line drawings and beautifully textured full colour images this is Burningham at his best, vividly capturing landscapes and the tiny, exquisitely drawn details that bring every character to life. A real celebration of kindness and community that offers a gentle introduction for small children to discussion about conservation and endangered species. A real classic that will be as timeless, popular and hopefully award-winning, as its predecessors.”
“Stunning illustrations... The modern master of the children's picturebook... still has an animal's heart and capacity for mischief.”
