Walter Speazlebud, the boy who can spell backwards and travel back in time, returns for a new adventure! Walter Speazlebud - first person on the moon - is back in Nittiburg, going to kung fu lessons with Annie and trying to come to terms with the death of his grandad. He still dreams about his trip to the moon, but he's trying to get back to ordinary life. Until...he receives an urgent message from the American government. There's an asteroid hurtling towards the earth - and they need Walter to stop it! Soon, Walter and his dad are in New York, discovering that an alien nation is holding the world to hostage. They are demanding the return of two of their people, alive. Only problem is, they died in an explosion in 1947. Walter must go back in time to save them.

About David Donohue

David is a music supervisor for film, a songwriter, and a former music journalist and arts television producer. Like Walter Speazlebud, he speaks and writes backwards effortlessly - and has even been known to make people go backwards. He has a high profile in Ireland for this talent, thanks to appearances on TV and radio, and hugely popular amongst schools and libraries. He is often stopped in the street by people asking him to talk backwards. In March 2004 he won an Arts Council Award worth 6,000 to become artist in residence for the 2004 Eigse Arts Festival in Carlow. His first book, a story for young children about Walter Speazlebud, published by O'Brien Press, was a bestseller in Ireland. David has a website that converts text into backwards writing: http://thejab.com/esrever.html He is developing a computer game based on spelling backwards. His rendition of 'Danny Boy' backwards ('yoB ynnaD') is available on CD. David lives in Co. Carlow, Ireland.
