    Reviewed by Darby MacnabWelcome to Topsy Turvy Town where a small boy’s uirky and hilarious perceptions are brought to life Here it rains broccoli cars are made from chocolate and have pineapple wheels buildings can walk fish smoke pipes and dogs play tubas Things are delightfully off kilter in this little boy’s world but it’s all in good fun There are laughing policemen joyful postmen and although most of the adults have a serious tilt to their gait and are dismissive of his imaginings our protagonist remains upbeat After dinner there’s still time to go fishing in his living room and to juggle a wildcatLuc Melanson’s distinctive illustrations may be familiar to Canadian readers Le Grand Voyage de Monsieur won the Governor General’s Literary Award for Children’s Illustration in 2002 while his illustrations in My Great Big Mama were shortlisted for the same award in 2009 Whimsy and wit emanate from these pages where bold textured shapes combine with a warm palette to create a comforting playful environment that perfectly conveys a child’s view of the world Buildings loom large adults have impossibly long legs and sport distracted expressions but a friend’s smile overshadows everything else and a hug from mum is the best reward for a very active imagination Children and adults alike will be drawn into this vibrant imaginary world and will rejoice that one boy’s creativity remains undaunted by non believers Canadian Children's Book News Spring 2010 Vol 33 No 2
