Synopsis

The Slant Book by Peter Newell

When little Bobby's stroller is suddenly set adrift, he goes streaking down a hill, gleefully wreaking havoc on the town's people he hurtles past-even bringing some along for the ride! Meet the police officer, the farmer's wife, the German band and the picnicking party, all of whom are affected by this afternoon stroll gone out of control. Who else will be in the wrong place at the wrong time as little Bobby's stroller goes careening down the slope? This unique and charming picture book on a slant (complete with tilted text and images) tells the tale of what can happen on a slant, through witty rhymes with comical, detailed illustrations to match the hilarious tone. Originally published in 1910, this classic children's book is sure to be enjoyed by the whole family.

Reviews
