Borrowed this from a friend, and read it and laughed out loud. Read it again, and laughed out loud. A very short little book, written by Roald Dahl, who also wrote "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory", "James and the Giant Peach", among others. He wrote it for the benefit of the Dyslexia Institute. Hence the premise of the story, a young vicar who is in charge of his own parish for the first time and the stress drives him into having Back-to-Front Dyslexia! Without realizing what he is doing, he begins to speak words in complete reverse letter order. "Spirit" becomes "Tirips", "drab" becomes "bard",etc. Imagine the problems the vicar has in overseeing the many tasks in his parish, preaching, praying, introducing himself (I'm Eel, Robert Eel. I am the new rotsap of Nibbleswicke.), speaking with parishioners (Miss Prewt becomes Miss Twerp)..... so you see where this goes.The solution is ingenious, and equally humorous. I would recommend the book for adults who enjoy a good laugh.The wonderfully fun illustrations by Quentin Blake are also great.
