The Vicar of Nibbleswicke Paperback

Illustrated by Quentin Blake

4 out of 5 (1 rating)


The Reverend Lee is suffering from a rare and acutely embarrassing condition: Back-to-Front Dyslexia.

It affects only his speech, and he doesn't realize he's doing it, but the parishioners of Nibbleswicke are shocked and confused by his seemingly outrageous comments.

At last a cure is found and the mild-mannered vicar can resume normal service. Or at least as normal as is possible for a man who must walk backwards to be sure of talking forwards! A highly comic tale in the best Dahl tradition of craziness, written for the benefit of the Dyslexia Institute.

Review by

A vastly amusing book about a vicar with a speech impediment that compels him to say rude words in church.
