Publisher's Note
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.

"The Reverend Lee is suffering from a rare and acutely embarrassing condition: Back-to-Front Dyslexia. It affects only his speech, and he doesn't realize he's doing it, but the parishioners of Nibbleswicke are shocked and confused by his seemingly outrageous comments.
At last a cure is found and the mild-mannered vicar can resume normal service. Or at least as normal as is possible for a man who must walk backwards to be sure of talking forwards!
A highly comic tale in the best Dahl tradition of craziness, written for the benefit of the Dyslexia Institute."
