Publisher Description:
Imagine your whole day lived backward, from beginning to end. When you got up, you'd put on your jacket, then your shirt and pants, and over those your underwear, because after all, backward is backward, and on a backward day backward is the way everything has to be. You'd walk downstairs backward and sit on your chair backward with your back to the table, and when your parents greeted you in the morning you'd say, of course, "Good night." But how long can a backward day go on? Just long enough for a smart kid to reverse the spell he's cast on the whole household and return everything to normal. "The Backward Day," a delightfully stylish picture book by the Caldecott Prize-winning team of Marc Simont and Ruth Krauss, brings to life a humorous and engaging reversal of ordinary reality that will enchant young children, as well parents.
