"Remarkable."—The Washington Post

"This mind-bending poetry is accompanied by Masse's equally intelligent, equally amusing art."—Time Out New York for Kids

What’s brewing when two favorites—poetry and fairy tales—are turned (literally) on their heads? It’s a revolutionary recipe: an infectious new genre of poetry and a lovably modern take on classic stories.

First, read the poems forward (how old-fashioned!), then reverse the lines and read again to give familiar tales, from Sleeping Beauty to that Charming Prince, a delicious new spin. Witty, irreverent, and warm, this gorgeously illustrated and utterly unique offering holds a mirror up to language and fairy tales, and renews the fun and magic of both.

Marilyn Singer is an award-winning author of more than 90 children’s books in a wide variety of genres. Josée Masse is a recognized artist in her native Canada, having illustrated numerous French and American picture books.

Customer Reviews of Mirror Mirror: A Book Of Reverso Poems

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful illustrations I bought this for my 4 year old--the pictures are beautiful and the poems are great. It may be a tad advanced for my daughter but we read it very slowly and try to see how the story changes when read through the opposite way. She still enjoys it but I know she'll get more out of it when she reading herself.
