Mirror, Mirror: a book of reversible verse by Marilyn Singer

Singer, Marilyn, and Josée Masse. Mirror Mirror: A Book of Reversible Verse. New York, N.Y.: Dutton Children's Books, 2010.

I was lucky enough to have my copy of this fabulous picture book of verses signed by Marilyn Singer at the 2010 ALA Conference. This book took an amazing amount of talent. Each poem is reversed to show a whole new meaning to the words. The illustrations also work wonderfully with the text. It is amazing how two totally different pictures are painted just by reversing the order of the verses included. This is a must read of 2010!
