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!

Another totally eccentric and whimsical character created by Quentin Blake, Mr Magnolia has only one boot and an old trumpet that goes rooty-toot! Rhyming fun accompanied by fantastic illustrations plus there's a scooter and a dinosaur too - simply brilliant!

'Mr Magnolia has only one boot...'. An ebullient story full of fun and joy that manages to find nearly every word that ever rhymed with boot! My children love the bright and slightly ridiculous humour of this book and the fun pictures by Quentin Blake perfectly match the style of the writing.  Will Mr Magnolia ever find another boot? You will have to read this to find out : )

Mister Magnolia has only one boot!  This is an absolute firm favourite in our house, crazy illustrations, completely random rhyming but simply superb!  Highly recommended.

This is a fantastic book with some amazing illustrations. Quentin Blake is probably most well known for his illustrations in Roald Dahl stories but his own book is a definite classic. Mr. Magnolia the title character of the book has only one boot and we follow him through his day with his fantastical family, friends and pets whilst he wears only one boot. We really enjoyed this book. The repetitive rhyming text makes it easy to remember and a pleasure to read.

A lovely story from Quentin Blake with great simple rhymes which make it very easy to share. The illustrations are classic Quentin Blake which my twins love looking at. A great book to share with young children.
