Mr Gumpy's Motor Car
Mr Gumpy has decided to go for a ride in his motor car. It's a nice day and the sun is shining, so off he goes. But he only gets as far as the lane before the children, the rabbit, the cat, the dog, the pig, the sheep, the chickens, the calf and the goat ask if they can come along too. As the motor car and its passengers make their way across the field, the weather begins to turn and the rain is soon pouring down. The tyres cannot grip the muddy ground, so Mr Gumpy asks for volunteers to push the car. But everyone has an excuse, until it gets so bad that they all have to get out and help. Eventually, the sun shines once more as they drive across the bridge - and there's time for a swim on the way home.

John Burningham
John Burningham opens with a foreword by John's U.S. contemporary, Maurice Sendak, the creator of Where the Wild Things Are. This is followed by an appreciation of John's work by the critic Brian Alderson, before John himself goes on in his own words to explore his childhood, his schooling at Summerhill, his beginnings as an illustrator designing posters for London Transport, and then his hugely successful, award-winning and still-ongoing career as a picture book author and illustrator. We see developmental notes for his first picture book, Borka, sketches, and lavish colour illustrations from his backlist of over 40 books. Providing new insights into his work, this is an ideal gift for Burningham fans, and for anyone interested in illustration.
