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.

About the Author:

JON AGEE has written and illustrated five previous books of wordplay, including Who Ordered the Jumbo Shrimp? and Other Oxymorons. He lives in San Francisco, California.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 4 Up-In his fourth collection of palindromes, Agee continues his love affair with the English language. The first page is a dedication to "MOM" in mammoth, "stone" block letters. Like the previous books, the pages are filled with whimsical black-and-white drawings of absurd or nonsensical situations. Some of the approximately 170 palindromes are monologues, some are comic-strip stories, and others are simply descriptive situations. From "How Palindromes Are Formed in the Atmosphere" to "AIBOHPHOBIA: Unusual Fear of Palindromes," readers are treated to rib-tickling, humorous stories, often with a subtle message to decipher. In "In the Garden," Adam asks a woman, "Eve?" She responds, "Sir, I'm Iris." After exhibiting a look of surprise, he responds, "Madam, I'm Adam," exuding an expression of supreme confidence. The pen-and-ink drawings give visual clues to the words. Even famous personalities, living and dead, or well-known logos cannot escape Agee's sometimes satirical pen. This book will invite students to join his comical, visual, and verbal train ride through the land of palindromes.
