The story is an oldie but a goodie. Published in 1970. "Mr Gumpy's Outing," by John Burningham is about Mr Gumpy's generosity, giving all the animals a ride on his river boat, knowing it would end in disaster.
They all had tea together at the end. All was forgiven.
The children made three pieces of art, which they put together to make one image of the outing.
