Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Reverend Robert Lee triumphed over dyslexia as a child, but when he becomes the new vicar of Nibbleswicke, he is so nervous that his dyslexia returns--in a new form. He doesn't realize it, but some of the words he speaks come out backward. "Just a dram of Dahl, but vintage".--Kirkus Reviews.

About the Author

Roald Dahl (1916-1990) was born in Wales of Norwegian parents. He spent his childhood in England and, at age eighteen, went to work for the Shell Oil Company in Africa. When World War II broke out, he joined the Royal Air Force and became a fighter pilot. At the age of twenty-six he moved to Washington, D.C., and it was there he began to write. His first short story, which recounted his adventures in the war, was bought by The Saturday Evening Post, and so began a long and illustrious career.

After establishing himself as a writer for adults, Roald Dahl began writing childrens stories in 1960 while living in England with his family. His first stories were written as entertainment for his own children, to whom many of his books are dedicated.

Roald Dahl is now considered one of the most beloved storytellers of our time. Although he passed away in 1990, his popularity continues to increase as his fantastic novels, including James and the Giant PeachMatildaThe BFG, and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, delight an ever-growing legion of fans.

I didn't even know Roald Dahl wrote anything like this. I adore his kids book, so when a friend recommended this to me, I had to read it. It is one of the most just flat out cute and amusing reads. I adored it, and it renewed my interest in this fabulous writer.
