Listen to an audio clip

He has a splendid time but he needs some help with his footwear! It's a galloping rhyme so it's great fun to read.
On the cover is a picture of Mister Magnolia who seems to have got dressed far too quickly and forgotten to brush his hair! It sticks up madly in all directions. None of his clothes match and he has the most enormous bow tie anyone ever wore. But, with a smile stretching from ear to ear he's ready for a jolly good time. His arms are flung wide open and he carries a trumpet, a green parakeet, a teacup and a stripy bathing costume.
