'Mr McGee went out to play, down to the beach one windy day,' the story begins. His happy mood is spoilt when he is bitten by a flea, a flea that he can't get rid of. The only solution is to take off all his clothes and jump into the sea because of course, fleas don't like the sea. Mr McGee and the flea are finally separated and the flea moves on to the hair of a dog instead. The pictures tell the story as well as the text.

          A fabulous book from a great Australian author. The large, simple text and the use of rhyme help beginner readers. It is also funny and engaging making it a perfect book for those learning to read. The children who read with our volunteers through Story Dogs love it! (www.storydogs.org.au)

              Pamela Allen

              Pamela Allen is a phenomenon in the world of children's literature. For almost thirty years her picture books have enchanted generations of children in Australia and overseas and many of her titles have won prestigious awards and commendations. She has earned classic status through the enduring popularity of her stories with the very young.

              Pamela's books are full of the music of language; they are 'fragments of theatre', designed to be read aloud and shared between an adult and a child. Eight of Pamela's titles were adapted for the stage by Patch Theatre Company, an Grandpa and Thomas won the Children's Book Council Book of the Year Award: Early Childhood and The Potato People was named an Honour Book in the same category in 2003, and Grandpa and Thomas and the Green Umbrella was shortlisted for the same award in 2007, as was Shhh! Little Mouse in 2008. Is Your Grandmother a Goanna? won a 2008 Speech Pathology of Australia Book of the Year Award, as did Our Daft Dog Danny in 2010.
