"What a delightful and funny story about a vicar who overcomes his dyslexia only to get nervous the night before getting his own parsonage and suffering back-to-front dyslexia (that is very common among tortoises). While the patrons of his parish are oftentimes put out by his unusual condition, they are generally good-hearted people who love him for his quirky eccentricities, especially when he cure for his word trouble is to walk backwards, which he does with the aid of a mirror attached to his forehead. It’s almost as if these people have learned that perfection is overrated and that jumping to conclusions about people is a horrible policy and that instead we should take the time to get to know people and embrace the complete picture of who they are no matter how different it may seem to us." said.

" Adorable book that pertains to dyslexia; takes only 5-10 minutes of your time. " said.

" I am dying to read this aloud, but I would walk a fine line that might get me in trouble. It would be such a joy, though! Hopefully, parents the world over delight in reading this silly, sometimes vulgar book to their children. " said.

" I didn't know about this book until just recently - some fun wordplay/s here and a nice message, backed up by the decision to donate the book's publishing to the cause (dyslexia). I guess it came out just after my first wave of reading Roald Dahl's books for children and I never picked it up on the second pass. (Am grateful then for libraries). " said.

" This short Roald Dahl story was published post-humously. The book was written for the Dyslexia Institute. Both Dahl and the illustrator, Quentin Blake, offered: "the donation of all rights, world-wide, for the period of the copyright." About Dahl and this book, Blake wrote it was "a landmark of both his concern for people and his passionate belief in the importance of reading." " said.

" Love love love!!!Only Roald Dahl can get away with saying "pis" and "krap" in a children's book and do it with such class! I never actually knew this little book existed until I borrowed it from a friend (and then put it away in my computer bag where it stayed for three years until I discovered it last week).According to the introduction by Quentin Blake this book was written specifically for the London Dyslexia Institute. Another case of "Flip Roald Dahl is so damn awesome!" " said.

" I was laughing out loud. Surprisingly funny and sweet. " said.

" This made me tear up with laughter as a child, and now as an adult I still laugh out loud. Sincere and silly, a short pleasing joy. " said.
