I have never really enjoyed books where the main message seems to be that conformity and bending to authoritarian rule are the best way to go.

I also dislike it when authors have everyone 'say' things, even questions - questions are ASKED. Ask is no more difficult a word than say and it is a more accurate choice. Aside from that, there are so many more expressive ways of describing how people speak. It seems lazy to just keep using say over and over again.

This is a perfect book for young children. It's got animals, imaginative drawings, repetitiveness, and a little humor.

Mr. Gumpy takes a ride in his small boat on the river. What happens when the children, rabbit, cat, dog, and other animals decide to join him?

Kind Mr Gumpy agrees to take the children and some animals for a boat ride. Everything goes well for a little while, then chaos ensues in this classic children's picture book.

This is a wonderful book! I love reading it (probably best to read it in a British accent ;)) and my daughter loves hearing it.
