'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.

Wonderful Rhyming Caper

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)
