WHAT REVIEWERS ARE SAYING...



Reviewer: Gianfranco Cazzaro (Carti Books Online)

"Donna Shepherd's "Topsy Turvy Land" is a beautiful book about the wonders God made in our world... pink hippos, green chimpanzees, chirping snakes, flying cows, vegetarian lions... well represented by Kevin Scott Collier's shining illustrations... it isn't difficult to find God's love for all of His creatures."

Reviewer: Carole McDonnell (Preschool Entertainment)

"Topsy Turvy Land begins with a brief description of the Creation, showing God to be an imaginative and wonderful artist. Then it ventures into Topsy Turvy Land, an imaginary world created by author Donna Shepherd and illustrated by Kevin Collier... Throughout the imaginings are colorfully illustrated with bright computer illustrations, depicting the various imaginary creations mentioned in the book... Highly recommended."

Reviewer: Suzanne Rae Deshchidn (Christian Book Previews.com)

"Published children's poet, accomplished writer, and budding theologian in her own right, Donna Shepherd's words sing off the pages. The imagery is delightful and sure to make children of all ages smile. Sixteen pages of whimsy and wonder culminate in the proclamation that God's creation is indeed very good."

Reviewer: Michael P. Snyder (Spring Hill, TN USA)

"The kids in my house love this book--the four little ones AND the two big ones. The words and pictures tickle the imagination and highlight the limitless breadth of God's creation. Biblical truth permeates every entertaining page.

The best endorsement I can give this book is this: Last night I allowed my 5-year old and my 4-year old to take three books to bed with them. The five-year old grabbed Topsy Turvy Land, igniting a small skirmish. The peace talks ended with a compromise--a five minute limit on Topsy Turvy Land before swapping with your brother. I guess we may have to buy another copy....or three or four."
