Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The ultimate celebration for the palindromic year 2002!

What exactly is "palindromania"? It's the inability to see the word STRAW without thinking WARTS. It's the powerful impulse to reverse the name OPRAH to make it HARPO. It's the uncontrollable urge to buy A TOYOTA. It's an obsession with words and phrases that read exactly the same forwards and backwards. And now, in his most entertaining and extensive volume, Jon Agee, the prime purveyor of palindromes, has taken this unique word phenomenon to a whole new level. Featuring themed sections, comic-strip-style stories, and even lengthy monologues, Agee's collection of over 160 familiar and unfamiliar palindromes paired with all-new masterly cartoons is a treasure for word-lovers young and old.

Palindromania! is a 2003 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.

Synopsis:

In this entertaining collection featuring themed sections, comic-strip-style stories, and even lengthy monologues, Jon Agee, the prime purveyor of palindromes, offers over one hundred sixty familiar and unfamiliar palindromes paired with all-new masterly cartoons in a treasury for word lovers young and old.

“All hail Jon Agee, the ‘Droll Lord of palindromes!” - Will Shortz

“For Jon Agee, creating palindromes is irrepressible.” - Associated Press

“A creative, comedic gem.” - Booklist
