D B Johnson channels M C Escher in this delightful, topsy-turvy picture book.

Mauk, mischievous apprentice to the master architect, mustn't draw on the plans for the new palazzo. But by moving the plans a bit each day, he finds a way to alter them, turning the master's creation on its head! Discover what mystery and excitement a small change of perspective has brought to the Palazzo.

In this masterpiece inspired by M.C. Escher, D.B. Johnson pushes the picture book to new extremes. With the continuous narrative and illustrations that can be viewed upside down, readers can turn the book over on page thirty-two and read all the way back to page one. Enter the Palazzo Inverso.... and see if you can find your way out.
