From the Author
"In precarious times such as ours, many children imagine a world where they can orchestrate their surroundings. When the real world turns topsy-turvy, they can visit a place called Topsy Turvy Land - a place of peace and whimsy, with the understanding that, while only God can create, it's so much fun to imagine!"

Published children's poet, accomplished writer, and budding theologian in her own right, Donna Shepherd's words sing off the pages. The imagery is delightful and sure to make children of all ages smile. Sixteen pages of whimsy and wonder culminate in the proclamation that God's creation is indeed very good.
Consider this passage: "He made the giraffe with his very long neck, / And the toucan with gigantic beak, / God must have had fun, / Creating each one, / And all in just under a week!" Rhymes which are pleasing are coupled with fun images sure to entertain.
Searching the stacks of children's books at libraries and bookstores can be overwhelming for any parent. It is nice to find a book that has a redemptive message for preschoolers. Sure to become a tattered favorite in chubby hands, this book is written with all the skill of Sandra Boynton. I highly recommend this book for children (and adults) of all ages.
The best endorsement I can give this book is this: Last night I allowed my 5-year old and my 4-year old to take three books to bed with them. The five-year old grabbed Topsy Turvy Land, igniting a small skirmish. The peace talks ended with a compromise--a five minute limit on Topsy Turvy Land before swapping with your brother. I guess we may have to buy another copy....or three or four.
