My 5-year-old daughter really enjoyed this storybook. The rhythm of the verse is energetic and and the story is humorous and entertaining. Kids will love the colour illustrations.

5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant quickie 6 Oct 2006
Format:Paperback
If you're looking for a speedy read for that "extra" bedtime story this is it. The poetry is sparse but witty, quirky and truly memorable. Indeed I leave out the last line of each page for my 3 year old to fill in the missing word. It is suitably surreal to keep my attention and entertain my son. I do not groan when he chooses this book at bedtime.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book for reading aloud with young children 10 Dec 2000
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
A great family favourite. This is a classic picture book for reading aloud with young children. The text is a poem, in each verse Mr Magnolia has a marvellous possesion - eg two lovely sisters who play on the flute - but only one boot. The boot reference repeats, so the chldren can shout along, until a very happy ending is reached. The illustrations are excellent, bright, at first glance simple but on closer examination there is lots of fun detail for the children to pick out. The style of the illustrations will be familiar to any Roald Dahl fans as Quentin Blake illustrated Dahls books. It is similar in many ways to the Dr Seuss books, the rhyme, repetition and silliness, but would suit slightly younger children. The finest praise - my children at 14 and 11 thought they had outgrown picture books, we are giving this to young cousins for Christmas, but only after my children have re-read it first!

5.0 out of 5 stars A book review of Mr Magnolia 23 Jun 2010
A Kid's Review
Format:Paperback
This book tells the story of Mr Magnolia. He has only one boot. The story is very funny all the time. It was great fun because at the end he gets a boot that doesn't match because one is blue and one is brown but the only thing that is the same is the white laces.
I liked this because it was suitable for any age. It is exciting because it gets better and better to the end and funnier. It is brilliant because he has only one boot.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mr Magnolia 6 July 2009
A Kid's Review
Format:Paperback
Youll be delighted with the way its written and the way its so terrifically illustrated. Mr Magnolia is a brilliant book because it has an excellent start, middle and end. Mr Magnolia makes you smile and laugh especially when it shows you his odd shoes. Mr Magnolia looks out of his window and sees everyone with two boots on. Olivia Year 3.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mister Magnolia 13 Jun 2009
Format:Paperback
I used to read this book to my great niece when she was less than a year old and could not possibly have understood it. We had to read it over and over again every time she visited me over the next three or four years and neither of us, amazingly, ever tired of it. Now I'm buying it for the first birthday of her little cousin, in the hope that he gets as much pleasure from the jaunty rhythms, charming pictures and opportunities for sound effects as we did.

2.0 out of 5 stars Mister magnolia.... Has only one boot x 27 Mar 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My 2 year old got this from the library and loves it so much, i had to buy it. Though i didnt realise that "mini treasures" was going to mean a teeny book!!! Will be ok to take out in her/my bag, but think we need a bigger size one too :/

Fantastic book and great pictures. A real favourite that is read daily in our house!!

I have to knock some stars off, as after 4 days, the pages started falling out :(

5.0 out of 5 stars Magnificent Magnolia 28 Sep 2009
Format:Paperback
I bought this for two children, one 3 and the other 5. They both enjoy listening to the CD and having the book read to them. And as well as them enjoying it, the simple poetry in the tale will hopefully help their development and their understanding of language.

It's a lovely story, perfect for my pupils who are learning English, as it's simple but funny and amusing at the same time! Blake's pictures are, as usual, really wonderful!
