What would happen if the whole world turned upside down? What does one do when people and things are not the way they supposed to be? In their picture book titled The World Upside Down, authors Lydia, Janalyn and Anastasia Habiger-Doxon invites readers to the world Lydia discovers one day, as she observes her family, the neighbors, the pets and even a jet airplane, all upside down.

Started as a simple conversation out of their own innocent curiosity, this book is conceived and written by three sisters, ages 6, 8 and 9. Filled with colorful illustration and vivid description, it offers a whimsical look at how the world will look like if it turned upside down.

The World Upside Down lets children discover how much fun it can be to see the world from a different perspective. As Lydia observes this upside down world, she playfully views all that is happening. One can also discover that an upside down world can be set right again as Lydia swings head over heels and turn the world right side up once more.

Fun, entertaining and very imaginative, this book shows that children are naturally inquisitive and curious, innocent creatures. The world around them intrigues them; they are busy bees, doers, live wires with relentless power to find out all they can about the world. What may seem common sense and familiar to most people is a wonder to them.

This book will be featured at the 2012 Florida Library Association Book Exhibit in Orlando, Fla. on April 18-20, 2012.

About the Author
Lydia, Janalyn and Anastasia were born in Ukraine, adopted and brought to the United States when they were 3, 4 and 5. Just a few years later, on the way to kindergarten Lydia asked “What would happen if the whole world turned upside down except for me?” What would happen if . . . become a frequent dinnertime conversation. That summer, on a road trip to Kansas to visit their grandmother, the conversation came up again. One of the girls came up with one of the rhymes in the book and then another and another. Their Mom, Lynn Ellen Doxon wrote it all down, they got their friend Terry Norcross to illustrate it and created The World Upside Down.
