Topsy-Turvy Tasks is a modern nursery rhyme. It’s part of a collectible series of six new classics by Latvian authors, translated into English for the first time. Maija Laukmane presents us with a world where everything is out of place. Once one thing changes, daily routines and chores get all mixed up for a child and her pets: soon, Annie is being chased by mice and her dog has taken her place at school. But some things never change. As soon as Morris the cat gets at a bowl of milk, no amount of havoc can prise him away… Sabine Moore’s bold illustrations are a mix of cartoon and cut-out styles, bringing their own bright and manic energy to this topsy-turvy world.
Translated from the Latvian by Žanete Vēvere Pasqualini and Kate Wakeling.
