FOLLOW FOLLOW BY MARILYN SINGER, ILLUSTRATED BY JOSEE MASSE (Dial, 2013)

This book is offered as a companion to Mirror Mirror, Singer’s first book of reverso poems. If you haven’t discovered these poems yet you are in for a real treat. From kids as young as 3rd grade all the way up through high school (shoot, my college kids are enthralled by these!) get a huge kick out of these poems. Let me explain. A reverso poem can be read from the top down and tell the story of, for instance, the Tortoise and the Hare from the hare’s perspective. The accompanying poem is that same poem but read from the bottom up which magically tells the same story but from the tortoise’s viewpoint. I cannot imagine how Singer does it because it seems so very complicated to me. Mirror Mirror was a gem and this new one, Follow Follow, is also a must have. Check it out, you won’t believe how marvelous these poems are.
