What do Adam, Napoleon, and Agee have in common? Their bond is the palindrome, that peculiar marvel of language when words or sentences read the same forward and backward. But Adam (Madam, I'm Adam) and Napoleon (Able was I ere I saw Elba) are credited with only one palindrome apiece. Jon Agee has come up with a whole bookful!

Overview

What do Adam, Napoleon, and Agee have in common? Their bond is the palindrome, that peculiar marvel of language when words or sentences read the same forward and backward. But Adam (Madam, I'm Adam) and Napoleon (Able was I ere I saw Elba) are credited with only one palindrome apiece. Jon Agee has come up with a whole bookful!
Each of teh more than sixty palindromes is accompanied by hilarious illustration in the inimitable Agee style. Children and adults alike will enjoy these linguistic laughs.

Editorial Reviews

Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books Starred
Agee scales narrative heights with his palindromes...A generously ridiculous and clever book that shows the marvel of words and the sense in nonsense.
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Wacky cartoons elaborate upon LLAMA MALL, TAHITI HAT and other novel palindromes. All ages. (Apr.)
School Library Journal
Gr 6 Up-- This small volume of palindromes--words, verses, or sentences that make sense (well, sort of) when read backwards and forward--is a collection of offbeat humor. Gifted and talented students might find it creatively challenging. Each of the 60 entries is augmented by a funny, literal black-and-white cartoon. A fun book for the right audience. --Valerie Childress, J. W. Holloway Middle School, Whitehouse, TX
