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.
This fairy tale-themed book of creative poetry is entertaining and so fun. When children are old enough to realize that each page has a poem that can be reversed to talk about a different part of a fairy tale, they’ll be amazed and even more intrigued by the book. This book is one parents will love to read, as well, because of the poem reversals. The illustrations are great, too!
