Sobre l'autor

Marilyn Singer was born in the Bronx, New York, on October 3, 1948, and lived most of her early life in North Massapequa on Long Island. She attended Queens College, City University of New York as an English major and education student, and for her junior year, attended Reading University, in mostra'n més England. She holds a bachelor's degree in English from Queens and a MA in Communications from New York University. Marilyn Singer had been teaching English in New York City high schools for several years when she began writing in 1974. Initially, she wrote film notes, catalogues, teacher's guides and filmstrips. She also began looking into magazine writing. Her article proposals were not very successful, but she did manage to have some of her poetry published. Then one day she penned a story featuring talking insects she'd made up when she was eight. Encouraged by the responses she got, she wrote more stories and in 1976 her first book, The Dog Who Insisted He Wasn't, was published. Since then, Marilyn has published more than 50 books for children and young adults. In addition to a rich collection of fiction picture books, Singer has also produced a wide variety of nonfiction works for young readers as well as several poetry volumes in picture book format. Additionally, Singer has edited volumes of short stories for young adult readers, including Stay True: Short Stories for Strong Girls and I Believe in Water: Twelve Brushes with Religion.

(89 pages) This book is about all kinds of animals from all over the world that are venomous. It goes into detail about snakes, spiders, scorpions and even into things like birds. I think that this book would be good at Middle Ages, a little older but not yet into middle school age, as it is a lot longer. I think that it would be a good read aloud book, only if you break it into sections as it is pretty long.

Super interesting book! Great visuals. I think that this would be a huge hit in 3rd-5th grade!

Some of these poem/reverso combinations are awesome, but some don't work as well. The illustrations are wonderful. This could certainly inspire and challenge young poets to work on their craft!

Back at ALA Midwinter Boston 2015, the Penguin gals spoke about this book during their Book Buzz session. I was hooked. Aside from the Greek myth angle this is such a clever way to tell stories. I very much recommend if you are reading this aloud that you offer sheets with the poems on it, you have to see how the lines and punctuation and pace change from side to side.

The illustrations are gorgeous - like the words they are reverse of each other (in the Hades/Persephone you see the sadness and happiness of their viewpoints for instance) and the myths chosen good fit. Not just very well known myths like Pandora, Persephone and Orpheus, but also Melanion & Atalanta, and Bellerophon & Pegasus.

To have this sort of imagination and agility of mind makes me jealous. This is a level of reading and writing comprehension that I wish we saw more often in fun ways like this. It makes a higher concept poetry idea interesting to a younger generation who wouldn't always been exposed to it.
