Overview

This absurdly clever and funny graphic novel, told entirely in palindromes, is created by World Palindrome Champion Jon Agee, author of Go Hang a Salami! I’m a Lasagna Hog!

Otto is having a very palindramatic day. His pet, Pip, has gone missing, and his search for the dog leads him deeper and deeper into a strange and perplexing world–full of talking owls, stacks of cats, storms and mazes, boats and trains and automobiles . . . oh my! Everything seems to be the same backward and forward, and Pip isn’t sure he’ll ever find his way home to Mom and Pop. But you, reader, will enjoy his Oz-like journey thoroughly.

Reviews
★ The panjandrum of palindromes crafts and collects some 200 examples to drive a picaresque graphic tale that (of course!) ends where it began . . . A rare treat, backward and forward. –Kirkus, starred review

The concept fulfills its offbeat premise in sequences that gleefully underline the fun of a good palindrome, and the joy of finding wordplay wherever one looks–whether Otto's visiting an art 'mueseum' ('Koons nook') or wandering through a cemetery ('Del was awled'), the results are supremely strange and funny. –Publishers Weekly

Moving through various landscapes and offering endless details, Agee's graphic novel is a feast for the eyes . . . Agee creates a sophisticated brand of wit and clever wordplay that will appeal to young humorists . . . Readers will be entranced by this dreamlike graphic novel that boasts a substantial collection of palindromes and an engaging visual narrative. –School Library Journal
