The Lovereading4Kids comment
Greenaway winner in 1980. From one of THE top illustrators of all time comes a wholly delightful picture book classic. Effortless rhyming text and gorgeous illustrations that meld so brilliantly into the story. Click here to see other titles by the wonderful Quentin Blake.
Mister Magnolia by 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. One day, he receives a mysterious parcel, and at last Mr Magnolia can splash in the puddles with everyone else!
'Mr Magnolia leaps and performs as only Quentin Blake knows how' - Guardian
'Mister Magnolia is deservedly a classic, where the ryhming text combines with the illustrations to create a really racous adventure' - Early years Educator
'Typically exuberant pictures from the first Children's Laureate with a singing storyline that begs children to join in the fun' - The Times
'A completely wonderful dotty rhyme' - Sunday Times
