Upsydoun is a young man who lives with his family in Turvyland. Like all his countrymen, Upsydoun walks on his hands, eats through his ear, and weeps when he is happy.
When Duchess Bredenbutta visited his country, Upsydoun invited her to enjoy dinner with his family. After dinner they danced on their thumbs while Upsydoun's sister played the piano with her feet. When the time came for the duchess to leave, Upsydoun told he her was glad to see her go. (The Magical Monarch of Mo)
