Book Review

This collection of some 170 illustrated palindromes follows in the style of Agee's five earlier works on wordplay. Many of the illustrations in Palindromania! are in comic strip format. In one of the hilarious cartoons, the first frame depicts a fat inmate escaping from Lew's Diet Prison. An angry prison guard shouts "Hey! Obese boy! Eh!" He is joined by a second guard to whom he says "Well, let's tell Lew." In the final frame the two officers are shown explaining to their boss: "We lost a fatso, Lew." There is no end to Agee's creativeness. He even coins a new word, aibophobia, meaning unusual fear of palindromes. The blend of wordplay and nonsensical illustrations will appeal to adults and children alike.
