Booklist Review

None of the riders in Mr. Gumpy's car wants to get out and push when it gets stuck in the mud after a rainstorm.

Horn Book Review

Mr. Gumpy and company ride again in this reissue of a much-loved book. The country gentleman and his entourage of children and barnyard animals go for a lovely drive through the fields, get stuck in the mud, squabble, cooperate, and go for a swim. This is one car trip children and adults will never tire of taking. (c) Copyright 2010. The Horn Book, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.

Kirkus Book Review

The second outing of our friend Mr. Gumpy (see KR, 1971) begins when the same company of two children and assorted farm animals piles into his red roadster, nearly breaks into a melee because everyone has a reason why he can't help push the car after it gets stuck in the mud, and ends amicably, as before, with a cooling swim. If the day's events are a virtual rerun the mood is fresh and expectant; with Gumpy's mild-faced companions, the portentous scratchboard landscapes and, especially, the sprucely cross-hatched motor car all offering plenty of inducement to go along for the ride.
