If you’re a king or a queen
Or anything between,
If you’re the mayor
Or a mystical creator,
Or a magic bean trader,
Come inside and take a look
At the poetry in this book.
The Downside Up will bring you into my world, where everything is a little better than it seems on the surface.
In this book of fantasy and fiction, you will meet a pencil-eating dragon that may lurk through your school halls. You will see a boy who is stuck inside a pickle, and one who has turned into a diving board. You will find a house that is drowning in dogs and a boy drowning his sorrows.
But no matter what you find, if you look hard enough, you can always see the positive side in the reflection.
The Downside Up is a book filled with poetry and drawings by Olivia Hughes.
