Product Information

A truly exciting new book from John Burningham, in the grand tradition of MR GUMPY'S OUTING, with a wonderfully cosy ending

"A delicate echo of Burningham's much-loved Mr Gumpy's Outing" -- Julia Eccleshare Guardian "The book invites children to identify the characters, and to point to them and to lost objects. The drawings carry their sophisticated skill lightly. An ideal step forwards from board books" -- Nicolette Jones Children's Book of the Week, The Sunday Times

John Burningham is one of the most prestigious and well-loved illustrators working in the children's book field today. Trained at the Central School of Art, his first picture book, Borka was published in 1963. He has won the Kate Greenaway Award twice for Borka and Mr Gumpy's Outing, and has enjoyed a distinguished career spanning 50 years.
