About this title


Jon Agee and his better half, Eega Noj, have conspired again to inspire palindromania in Mom, Pop, Sis, and the family pup. With over sixty new reversible absurdities, readers will be doing a double take, while the preposterous illustrations leave them begging between guffaws, No, Jon!

From Publishers Weekly:

Palindromic pundit Agee follows up his Go Hang a Salami! I'm a Lasagna Hog! with another volume of black-and-white cartoons and punchy captions that can be read forward or backward. Some of the palindromes clearly will tickle kids' fancy: "Pupil's slipup" shows a child drawing a caricature of his teacher, unaware that the subject of his ridicule is peering over his shoulder; and a girl sipping through a straw looks aghast at hairy bumps on it ("Straw warts"). Other Agee creations seemed aimed at adults: in "Diana Bruno, On Urban Aid," a woman points at a labyrinthine diagram of where tax dollars are going; and "Flo, Gin is a sin! I golf!" says one golf-club-toting nun to a sister grabbing a drink at a bar. Two other palindromes also involve bar scenes, which may offend some parents, librarians or teachers. Also running to the off-color (but likely to please kids) are such cartoons as that of a dog lifting his leg as he addresses a man painting the Tower of Pisa ("As I pee, sir, I see Pisa!"); and that of a scientist gazing through an enormous microscope as a colleague wonders what he sees: "Snot or protons?" All ages.
