A hilarious, lively picture book by two of the luminaries of New Zealand children’s books.

Absentminded Mister Whistler always has a song in his head and a dance in his feet. In a rush to catch the train, he is so distracted he loses his ticket. Is it in the bottom pockets of his big coat or the top pockets of his jacket? Perhaps he slipped it into his waistcoat... Where is Mister Whistler’s ticket?
