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.

My favorite verse was the Doubtful Duckling p[14-15]. I am bias to this particular one because it was one of my favorite bedtime stories as a child. Singer’s reverso poem was able to flawlessly express the duckling’s internal struggle. Masse’s illustrations throughout the book flow seamlessly and ...

Such a fun book full of brighly colored illustrations. I love how the book displays two points of view for each fairy tale through clever poems and illustrations. It would be fun for students to read and then try writing their own reversos!
