Mister Magnolia has many things…

such as an old trumpet that goes rooty-toot, some very fat owls learning to hoot, a big purple dinosaur who’s a magnificent brute, two sisters who play the flute, and even a swimming pool. But he still only has one boot! Join Mister Magnolia on his wacky adventures!
