This wacky picture book is Glenn Colquhoun’’s third book for children. Playful, clever rhymes make the text perfect for reading aloud, and simple language means that even young readers will enjoy discovering the story for themselves.

Nikki Slade Robinson’’s bright, lively illustrations chase each other across every page in a unique interpretation of this upside-down world.
