"A beast can love beauty...Beauty can love a Beast."

Mirror, Mirror, A Book of Reversible Verse
by Marilyn Singer, illustrated by Josée Masse

You have enjoyed fairy tales all your life. When you were very young, you probably quivered at the appearance of the Wolf and the evil Witch. You knew, though, that the good character would prevail in the end. But, did you know that there were other ways of looking at the story? What if you could get inside the head of the Wolf or the Witch? Do you think the Prince in Sleeping Beauty would like to tell you more?

Marilyn Singer has produced an ingeniuous collection of reversible poetry--Mirror, Mirror--in the world of fairy tales. Using the same words, she shows how two different ideas can be expressed when read forward and backwards. One reading won't satisfy you! This is a book you'll want to read again and again!

The Kids' Wings literature guide invites group discussion, prediction, drama, problem-solving, and skill building. Teachers who want students to have an appreciation of poetic twists will want make this intermediate-level picture book part of their classroom libraries.
