Rumbelow's Dance

Publisher: Andersen Press

Little Rumbelow is off on the long journey to visit his grandparents. It’s a hot day, but Rumbelow is so happy he starts to dance.

Soon he meets a sad farmer. How is he to get his pig to market on such a hot day? Rumbelow persuades him to dance too. Next he meets a flower-girl, a tinker, a poultry boy, an organ-grinder, an eel-catcher…and many more! Soon a whole troop of people are dancing along behind the little boy. When they reach the house of Rumbelow’s grandparents they all stop for tea and enjoy a dance with the old couple too. And then Rumbelow dances home.

This picture book is a joyful jaunt featuring rhyme, lots of repetition and of course, Quentin Blake's characterful, colourful illustrations.
