by Mark Shulman Illustrated by Adam McCauley
A Zany Tale Cleverly Constructed Out of 101 Palindromes!

Show just how entertaining and intriguing palindromes really are in this tale of compulsive wordplay!

When MISS SIM teaches about palindromes, BOB makes an unsettling discovery: He can't get away from palindromes...because he is one! So are his MOM, DAD, RACE CAR, KAYAK, and PUP! His face gets REDDER and REDDER as his world keeps going backward and forward. Mirror-image words are everywhere!
