The Lovereading4Kids comment
A delicious joke which sees all kinds of babies ending up with all kinds of parents who are not their own! When the world tips…the grass-chewing cow gets a meat-eating lion cub, the super-fast cheetah gets a sloth for a babe while the owl who only closes her eyes at dawn gets a noisy rooster chick with quite a different view of the world. Luckily there is a happy ending – mostly!
Upside Down Babies by Jeanne Willis
Once when the world tipped upside down, The earth went blue and the sky went brown. All the baby animals tumbled out of bed And ended up with very funny mums instead...
A joy to read aloud time and again. Delightful. Books for Keeps
What a hoot! The funny illustrations and humorous rhyming couplet text will have everyone laughing from start to finish in this inspired book. EYE
Brilliantly funny ... There's not a thing I'd change about it, and it's sure to be a hit at home and in the classroom The Bookbag
Fun... Adrian Reynolds, as ever, creates wonderfully expressive animals The School Librarian
Very sweet Bookwitch
