Once upon a time, "Mirror Mirror," a brilliant book of fairy tale themed reversos-a poetic form in which the poem is presented forward and then backward-became a smashing success. Now a second book is here with more witty double takes on well-loved fairy tales such as Thumbelina and The Little Mermaid.
