A lighthearted young lad, Rumbelow is off to visit his grandparents, and as he walks along his way he feels so happy that he starts to dance. The first person he meets on the road is a gloomy farmer trying to drive a pig to market. "Why not dance him to the market?" inquires Rumbelow, and soon his infectious enthusiasm has a whole string of new friends dancing along with him. One of the world's most beloved illustrators—perhaps best known for his collaborations with Roald Dahl on numerous books for children—inaugural British Children's Laureate and Hans Christian Andersen Award winner Quentin Blake teamed with educator John Yeoman on this delightfully offbeat picture book for readers 4 to 8.
"Quentin Blake at his glorious best.... One of those list books that children absolutely love."—A.N. Wilson
