This is the story of Mrs McToot,
and the musical instrument she keeps in her boot.
She’s tall and pretty, caring and kind;
Perfect in fact, with the cleverest mind!

To look, you may think that she doesn’t impress,
In her Wellington boots and flowery dress -
But never before have you seen such a flute,
As the one in the wellies of Mrs McToot!

Don't let first impressions fool you, there is much more than meets the eye to Mrs McToot! With the help of the magical flute which she keeps in her wellington boots; fun, adventure and a few surprises are guaranteed.

    Totally charming and easy for children to access. I'm using this for 'extended narratives' with my Year 9 SEN class. The use of humour makes it enjoyable for the children - and that makes my life easier. There is a vocabulary stretch that is just the right level. Thank you Duvet Publishing.
