Mr Magnolia has many things, such as an old trumpet that goes rooty-toot, some very fat owls learning to hoot, a big purple dinosaur who's a magnificent brute, two sisters who play the flute, and even a swimming pool. But, he still only has one boot. Then one day a mysterious parcel arrives...
This is a wonderfully whimsical nonsense rhyme in picture book format. Children will love the energy and humour of the verse, which is a treat to read aloud together. Quentin Blake's appealing, colourful illustrations including lots of fascinating details that children will enjoy picking out.
