KIRKUS REVIEW

The appeal of this little book is its nonsense for the little boy who wakes to decide that "Today is backward day" carries through his dressing backwards, walks backwards, sits backwards at the breakfast table -- and is joined by his father and mother and little sister. He lands himself right back in bed, and, with backward day gone, is all ready to start the day properly. The idea will amuse when the tedium of too much routine is overpowering, and also show that a joke is a joke and not to be kept up indefinitely.
