Have fun with wordplay and promote understanding of dyslexia

The Vicar of Nibbleswicke was one of Roal Dahl's last stories. He wrote it shortly before his death in 1990 and the story was published in 1991. It is suitable for older students, and tells the tale of the Reverand Robert Lee and the situations he finds himself in due to his unique condition - Back-to-Front Dyslexia. The story was published in aid of The Dyslexia Institute.
