A classic, exuberant, rhyming picture book from the much-loved Quentin Blake.
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!
