Billy Back-to-front by Sam McCullen


Billy Back-to-front by Sam McCullen

Everything about Billy is back to front. His hair grows sideways, his pants go outside his trousers and his words go all over the place! One day, he wants to wake up and not be noticed by anyone but when his wish comes true, he realises life is not quite so much fun...


Great is book this! Kids will love Billy's reverse wordplay and marvel at McCullen's charming and intricate illustrations.
