An odd boot for Mr. Magnolia

Surely you’ve met Mr. Magnolia, as brought to life by the incomparable Quentin Blake? He’s been loved by our entire family for the last 40 years, and if you haven’t met him yet, you may not know that the poor man has only one boot. Not to worry. I found him another one the other day.

For Becky’s Square Odds.

    1. I must get this for Tabitha as she loves walking around with only one boot! Suspect though even the charity shop won’t have a copy at the original price of 90p

  1. I’m too old to have grown up with Mr Magnolia but he was one of my favourite read-alouds as a children’s librarian, so I know him well 😀 I’m so glad you found his boot!

  2. Well, thank you and not sure how I missed Mr Magnolia when my children were growing up even though Roald Dahl and Blakes illustrations were so popular. Yes, must get it for the grandchildren now. And love that boot pic.

    1. Everyone should have a chance to meet Mr. Magnolia, so I hope you get the chance soon. There was a marvellous programme on TV recently about Quentin Blake and his creative process. Such an interesting man!
