about

The Vicar Of Nibbleswicke was written by Roald Dahl in the last months of his life. In a typical act of generosity he donated the story (and Quentin Blake’s illustrations) for the benefit of the Dyslexia Institute. Reverend Lee is so worried about being in charge of his own parish for the first time that his childhood dyslexia comes back, in the form of a strange speech defect. He doesn’t realize he’s doing it, but key words come out of his mouth backwards. The parishioners are amused and later shocked at the garbled messages from the pulpit until finally a cure is found: the Vicar of Nibbleswicke must walk backwards for the rest of his life.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Funny yet helps to understand difference. I am dyslexia. And this was a fun way to help my grandchildren understand me. There are some British terms that children raised in a North American culture neded explaining. Because I have a Masters in Theology I could relate to Rev. Lee. I love the book and bought several copies.
