Annotations for Back to Front and Upside Down!


Baker & Taylor
Stan doesn't like writing--his letters come out upside down and back to front, some don't even look like letters at all, and he certainly can't tell Miss Catnip because he fears everyone will laugh at him; but today, as his class writes cards for a special occasion, Stan finds it harder and harder to hide his troubles...

It's the principal Mr. Slipper's birthday, and while the rest of the class gets busy writing cards for the occasion, Stan becomes frustrated when his letters come out all in a muddle. Stan is afraid to ask for help, until a friend assures him that nobody's good at everything. And after lots and lots of practice, Stan's letters come out the right way round and the right way up.

This delightful book deals with a common childhood frustration and will remind readers that practice pays off and that everyone has to ask for help sometimes.
