Written in rhyming verses, this book takes the reader on a wild ride through the strange island of Turvytops where everything is not quite right creatures are upside down or back-to-front, volcanoes spew water and mountains are made of ice cream. Here polar bears hate the cold, pandas are mean, cats fly around in flocks and sharks like to sunbath! These hilarious characters including a nose-picking rhino, sock-wearing hippos and gerbils in glasses are brought to life by the genius of illustrator, Jim Medway. Written, designed and produced to appeal both parents and children, this new book will capture the imagination of every young child who looks upon its colourful and imaginative pages.

About the Authors

Cecil Brasher grew up on a concentrated diet of illustrated books: lashings of Babar, oodles of Sendak and endless helpings of Hergé. A publisher and author, he lives in London with his wife and two young children.

Jim Medway wrote and drew the weekly strips New at the Zoo and Crab Lane Crew for The DFC comic, and now draws the thrilling adventure series Sgt. Chip Charlton & Mr. Woofles of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police for The Phoenix Comic. In 2006 Jim collaborated with Michael Smith on the book Shorty Loves Wing Wong (Faber), and recently his own short graphic novel Playing Out has been published by Blank Slate Books. The rest of the time, he's learning to signwrite, and teaches kids of all ages how to create their own comics.
