Go Hang a Salami! I'm a Lasagna Hog!: And Other Palindromes

Jon Agee, Author Farrar Straus Giroux $14.41 (1p) ISBN 978-0-374-33473-4
Agee's lighthearted black-and-white cartoons illustrate a roundup of clever palindromes--words and phrases that can be read from left to right and in reverse. Among the 60-odd entries are those depicting a handful of long-necked animals in the parking lot of the ``Llama Mall''; ``Emily's sassy lime'' squirting a man in the eye; a chef screaming ``Stop, pots!'' to his runaway cookery; a feline sidling up to a bar and ordering a ``pint a' catnip''; and a couple stranded on a small island engaged in conversation (`` `Nora, a raft . . .' `Is it far, Aaron?' ''). The publisher plays along good-naturedly: note the book's price and ISBN. It all adds up to plenty of fun . . . nuf said? How about one more: there's plenty in these pages to elicit more than one hearty ``hah hah.'' All ages. (Aug.)
