Terry Perkins and his Upside Down Frown by Felix Massie (Frances Lincoln Children's Books)


What's the world like viewed upside down? Let's ask this poor frowny chap...

Here's an odd but original twisty turny tale, the tale of one Terry Perkins! In "Terry Perkins and his Upside Down Frown", Terry is a decidedly different child. As he learns to talk, everything that he says seems to come out upside down...When other babies are starting to say "Mum, Dad and Doggy" poor Terry can only utter "ʎƃƃop 'pɐp 'ɯnW" instead.

It takes an eccentric doctor to spot the problem and suggest a radical cure. Flip Terry upside down and turn his frown into a smile, and also spɹoʍ sᴉɥ llɐ uɹnʇ the right way up!

But can poor Terry really live a life standing on his head?

A fun and original story with a lovable central character.
