Marilyn Singer's "reverso" poems (which consist of two poems with the same lines in reverse order), are fun expressions of fairy tales. The accompanying illustrations by Josee Masse feature bold colours that will appeal to children. Try writing your own reverso!
It is amazing how a story can be completely changed using the same sequences of words with different punctuation and capitalization.
"A sequel to Mirror Mirror features more witty double takes on well-loved fairy tales from Thumbelina to The Little Mermaid, in a volume that is comprised of clever poems that mean one thing if read from top to bottom and have a different meaning when read in reverse."
