Summary

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 However, a cure is found walking backwards everywhere for the rest of his life, and the mild-mannered vicar can resume normal service

The book contains a reference to Dahl's previous novel Esio Trot, noting that its title is tortoise backwards
