5.0 out of 5 stars A cracker! 31 Dec 2000
By A Customer
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My only complaint is that this book was too short. It made me laugh out loud and I thought the way it treated the problem of dyslexia was practical and fun, instead of being some weighty, miserable essay about trauma it put a smile on my face. Perfect.

5.0 out of 5 stars word play! 3 Sep 2009
A Kid's Review
Format:Paperback
I really enjoyed this book. The way the vicar accidently says important words backwards makes some extremely funny scenes, for example instead of telling the knitting group that each one of them "knits" the word becomes "stink". I also think the way some backwards words sound like the vicar is swearing adds to the interest and humour. James

Bought this as a silly little present for my husband, who had never read the story before. The book was promptly delivered, arrived safely and was in mint condition. We have really enjoyed reading the story (for me, a 'rediscovery').
