The Reverend Robert Lee triumphed over dyslexia as a child. But when he becomes the new vicar of Nibbleswicke, that triumph turns to travesty. For his condition has not resurfaced in its old manner, but in a virulent and highly peculiar form. Without his even being aware of it, the most important words in the sentences he utters mysteriously turn themselves around and come out backwards. A vicar calling on the blessing of Dog Almighty? Drol help the good people of Nibbleswicke! Once again Roald Dahl and Quentin Blake join forces, spinning a hilarious story of a most remarkable vicar, whose unusual solution to his problem is sure to amuse Dahl's many fans.
Grandmamma loves to tell about witches. Her grandson listens closely to Grandmamma's stories - but nothing can prepare him for the day he comes face-to-face with The Grand High Witch herself!
