There is no way to describe this book, one must experience. Each page has a poem about a famous fairy tale that makes perfect sense. The next page is the EXACT same poem written with the last line first to the first line last, and it changes the entire meaning, but still makes perfect sense. Working in a children's library, I read a lot of children's books, but this book is intriguing for adults as well. Some of the most clever writing I have ever come across.
