The highly-acclaimed form is back for a third time in ECHO ECHO: Reverso Poems about Greek Myths (Dial Books, 2016). Granted, I've loved Greek mythology since I was a child, but to see these familiar stories being told in such a fresh new way is fantastic! But what if you're not a longtime Greek mythology buff like I am? That's okay! You don't need to be since there is a brief summary of each myth across the bottom of every spread.
Besides the excellent (starred) reviews ECHO ECHO received from Publishers Weekly and School Library Journal, The New York Times had this to say: "Marilyn Singer’s ingenious ‘reverso’ poems are child-friendly feats of verbal pyrotechnics." I mean, really, need I say more? Probably not... though I will anyway.
The Boston Globe described ECHO ECHO as "The perfect supplement or introduction to Pandora, King Midas, Icarus, and the rest of the bunch of fantastically flawed gods, monsters, and mortals…easy and rewarding to read."
The Wall Street Journal described the collection as "delightful...vivid, glowing." And speaking of delightful, vivid, and glowing, wait until you see the amazing illustrations by Josée Masse! Once again, just as she did with MIRROR MIRROR and FOLLOW FOLLOW, Josée Masse provides a feast for the eyes. With a palette of Mediterranean-inspired blues, golds, and greens, the stylized illustrations capture the dualistic nature of the reversos in gorgeous detail.
