"Remarkable." "The Washington Post"
"This mind-bending poetry is accompanied by Masse's equally intelligent, equally amusing art." "Time Out New York for Kids"
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.
