Mister Magnolia

by Quentin Blake

Mister Magnolia Synopsis

Mr Magnolia has only one boot. He has an old trumpet that goes rooty-toot - And two lovely sisters who play on the flute - But Mr Magnolia has only one boot. In this wittily rhyming picture book, Mr Magnolia has a full and happy life except for one serious omission - a boot. But one day, he receives a mysterious parcel, and at last Mr Magnolia can splash in the puddles with everyone else!

The Good Book Guide Review

'He has an old trumpet that goes toot-a-toot but Mr Magnolia has only one boot.' A zany, easy to read rhyming text with captivating pictures.
