Join one special boy on a journey through Topsy-Turvy Town. The place he lives is a town where it rains broccoli that crunches when it lands on the tops of umbrellas, where police officers march to a very different beat, where you can go fishing in your living room or even juggle a wildcat before bedtime. But not everybody shares his vision of Topsy-Turvy Town. His big sister thinks the very idea is crazy. His aunt thinks he’s making it up. As for Dad, he ignores the weird and wonderful things his son sees. Luckily, he can share his imaginative world with someone who understands, his mom.
