Published by Red Fox


Price £6.99

A picture book classic. The illustrations are a wonderful introduction to Quentin Blake's lively and humorous style which children will always recognise. The memorable rhyming text features the delightful Mister Magnolia who 'has only one boot'. It is surprising to discover so many possible rhymes for 'boot', with such a variety of spellings - flute, newt, suit, salute, etc.
