Topsys & Turvys
by Peter Newell
(cover missing, image
is of title page)

Found this book with no cover in with many other old family books. As indicated by the inscription, it was apparently given to my grandfather Benjamin Prescott Burpee (1889-1958) in 1893, when he was 4 years old. 

See also another charming family treasure, almost 200 years old, called WINTER, published in 1825 and 
The Birds' Christmas Carol
, 1929, owned by my mother.


The reader would read the text at the bottom. Then he would flip the book 
to read the rest of the rhyme and see what the picture becomes. Very clever!
