Robert (or Bert) thought he had his hands full when his mom and dad were palindromes. But now, his Grandma Reagan is in anagram danger! In fact, his sisters, Ann and Nan, and almost every other thing in his world, have become anagrams. Can Robert (or Bert) figure out the answer to his word dilemma—or is he fated to live a scrambled life? In this zany follow-up to Mom and Dad Are Palindromes, Mark Shulman and Adam McCauley have crafted an impeccably clever and wonderfully wild ride through the drag meow of anagrams, er, make that word game, of anagrams. Sure to be a hit with teachers, it will have kids laughing and learning wherever they read it.
