Now one of Booklist's 30 Best Books of the Year!

"Genius!" – Wired.com

“Marilyn Singer's verse in Follow Follow practically dances down each page .  . . the effect is miraculous and pithy.” – The Wall Street Journal

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.

Read these clever poems from top to bottom and they mean one thing. Then reverse the lines and read from bottom to top and they mean something else–it is almost like magic!

A celebration of sight, sound, and story, this book is a marvel to read again and again.

Synopsis:

This interactive book invites young children to play the classic "I spy" game. The rhymed verses give youngsters clues about who to look for in the detailed illustrations. Little ones will be delighted when they spy Tom Thumb, Jack and Jill, The Three Little Bears and many other nursery rhyme characters hiding in the pictures. This sturdy new board book edition is perfect for a book that will be picked up again and again. Allan Ahlberg and his wife, the late Janet Ahlberg, are the acclaimed author/illustrator team of such works as Peek-A-Boo!, The Jolly Postman, and Starting School.

Synopsis:

Viking is proud to reissue a special 25th anniversary hardcover edition of Each Peach Pear Plum, Janet and Allan Ahlberg's engaging and beloved adaptation of "I spy." A true classic, this book starring a cast of familiar nursery rhyme characters is the winner of the 1978 Kate Greenaway Medal (the U.K. equivalent of the Caldecott Medal) and an American Library Association Notable book.

One of our family favorites. Fun to "I spy," but be warned, one is very difficult to find! Both my kids memorized this book from re-reading--the best testimonial of all. A keeper, worth owning in hardcover.
