really liked it
bookshelves: kids-1001, adventure
Read in January, 2010

I could read this a hundred times. Gumpy sets out on an outing and keeps adding additional boaters to his adventure until the inevitable catastrophe occurs and the boat overturns. But it’s not really a catastrophe after all and everyone shakes off the water and promises to come for another outing soon.

Deb (Readerbuzz) Nance It's on the list of 1001 Children's Books You Must Read Before You Grow Up. Definitely should be on this list.
