Singer, Marilyn Echo Echo, illustrated by Josee Masse. PICTURE BOOK/POETRY. Dial (Penguin), 2016. $17. Content: G.
Marilyn Singer has turned her talented eye to mythology. Using her amazing reverse poetry, Singer shows two sides of several myths – most familiar, some lesser known. Doesn’t matter – I am still dumbfounded by her eye and ear and ability to find and define both stories using the same words, just in reverse order and some punctuation changes. I know people usually avoid poetry like the plague, but this is one you should not miss.
