Mirror Mirror: A Book of Reversible Verse (2010)
4.14 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: Mirror Mirror by Marilyn Singer and Illustrated by Josee Masse is great for children ages 6 through 11 years old. When you open the book first you read the poems from top to bottom for one meaning then you reverse the lines and read again from bottom to top for another meaning of...
Follow Follow: A Book of Reverso Poems (2013)

review 1: I loved the creativity of Mirror, Mirror so clearly I had to read this one. The author clearly has a gift to boil classic fairy tales down to a poem. Her true talent shows when she takes the poem and flips it. The same poem when flipped has a new perspective by the change of pun...

Rutherford B., Who Was He?: Poems About Our Presidents (2013)
3.98 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: I've enjoyed Hendrix's style of historical figures in other books, and was not disappointed here. I was a bit disappointed in the overall negative portrayal of many presidents. I found the coverage to be a bit unbalanced. My liberal friends would love some of these, especially th...
