The people of Nibbleswicke have a new Reverend. And the Reverend has a very peculiar problem - Back-to-Front Dyslexia.

It was first published in London in , after Dahl's death, by Century. The Reverend Robert Lee, the new vicar of Nibbleswicke, is suffering from a rare and acutely embarrassing condition: Back-to-Front Dyslexia, a fictional type of dyslexia that causes the sufferer to say the most important word often being the verb in a sentence backwards, creating comedic situations. For example, instead of saying knits , he will say stink ; god would be dog etc. 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, especially the church's most generous benefactor, Miss Arabella Prewt, who does not take kindly to being called 'Miss Twerp'. However, thanks to the local doctor, a cure is found walking backwards everywhere for the rest of his life , and the mild-mannered vicar can resume normal service.
