Once upon a time, Mirror Mirror, a brilliant book of fairy tale themed reversos a poetic form in which the poem is presented forward and then backward became a smashing success. Now a second book is here with more witty double takes on well-loved fairy tales such as Thumbelina and The Little Mermaid.
Read these clever poems from top to bottom and they mean one thing. Then reverse the lines and read from bottom to top and they mean something else it is almost like magic
A celebration of sight, sound, and story, this book is a marvel to read again and again."

Singer and Masse’s companion to Mirror Mirror (a PW Best Book in 2010) is just as inspired as its predecessor. Iconic fairy tale characters speak through poems that can be read backward and forward, resulting in drastically different meanings. Familiar rivals duke it out: “I can’t be/ beat./ I’ve got rabbit feet to/ take me to the finish line,” says the overconfident hare. “Take me to the finish line!/ I’ve got rabbit feet to/ beat./ I can’t be/ the smallest bit distracted,” maintains the tortoise. Elsewhere, the line “Behold his glorious majesty” conveys both vanity and incredulity in Singer’s take on the Emperor’s New Clothes. Cobalts, reds, and golds dominate Masse’s textured acrylics, contributing suitably regal visuals for Singer’s dizzyingly clever wordplay. Ages 6–up. Agent: Brenda Bowen, Sanford J. Greenburger Associates. Illustrator’s agent: Lori Nowicki, Painted Words. (Feb.)
