Product Details


★ ”The panjandrum of palindromes crafts and collects some 200 examples to drive a picaresque graphic tale that (of course!) ends where it began . . . A rare treat, backward and forward.” —Kirkus, starred review

★ ”Idiosyncratic-picture-book creator and consummate wordsmith Agee has crafted a surreal graphic novel . . . The book is immersive and impressively cogent . . . Simply put . . . WOW!” —Horn Book, starred review

“The concept fulfills its offbeat premise in sequences that gleefully underline the fun of a good palindrome, and the joy of finding wordplay wherever one looks—whether Otto’s visiting an art ‘mueseum’ (‘Koons nook’) or wandering through a cemetery (‘Del was awled’), the results are supremely strange and funny.” —Publishers Weekly

“Moving through various landscapes and offering endless details, Agee’s graphic novel is a feast for the eyes . . . Agee creates a sophisticated brand of wit and clever wordplay that will appeal to young humorists . . . Readers will be entranced by this dreamlike graphic novel that boasts a substantial collection of palindromes and an engaging visual narrative.” —School Library Journal
