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.
But one day, he receives a mysterious parcel, and at last Mr Magnolia can splash in the puddles with everyone else!
