Description

Terry Perkins is a normal, happy boy. That is, until he opens his mouth. When he does, nobody can understand the words he says because everything comes out upside down. When a trip to the doctor turns Terry's life - and his smile - on its head, his frown looks set to stay...Is there anyone who can help him to see things from a different point of view? This hilarious, warm-hearted read-aloud story of friendship and courage celebrates the importance of being comfortable in your own shoes - even when they are up in the air!

Reviews

'this book will have you frowning, laughing, expressing quizzical looks and sighing in sympathy with the lovable key character Terry.' Early Years Educator Selected for August Preview/Picture Books: "Quirky debut about a boy whose words come out upside-down, which will resonate with children who have problems fitting in, or with speech and language. Massie's background is animation, which is evident in the strong graphic style." -- Fiona Noble The Bookseller 'This hilarious, warm-hearted read-aloud story of friendship and courage celebrates the importance of being comfortable in your own shoes - even when they are up in the air!'.
