The Vicar of Nibbleswicke-Carol McHugh

The Vicar

I chose The Vicar of Nibbleswicke as my Cake Dahl piece as it is one of the least know books. Roald Dahl wrote it in the last months of his life and donated the story (and Quentin Blake the illustrations) for the Dyslexia Institute. It is a very funny book where the poor vicar suffers with Back -to-Front Dyslexia. It affects only his speech and his parishioners are shocked and confused by his outrageous comments. Only Roald Dahl can get away with saying "krap" and "pis" in a children's book in such an amusing, childish way.
