This small, hardcover book goes along with the FIAR book, Mr. Gumpy and His Motor Car.

Sweet, simple story with dreamy illustrations. Before giving them a ride, Mr. Gumpy warns the children and animal passengers on his boat not to misbehave (squabble, hop about, tease, flap, bleat, etc.). Of course, they all do. The boat tips, they fall in the water and dry out on the river bank in the hot sun. But Mr. Gumpy is a nice guy. He doesn't get angry. In fact, they all go to his home for tea in the end. Adorable.

This ISBN is also used for the Weekly Reader Book Club Edition, which is much smaller than the original. You might like to ask the sender which copy they have before requesting this book if having the original edition is important to you.

A hardcover book, not a board book.

This was one of my children's favorite books when they were young!
