There are two sides to every story, and fairy tales are not an exception.

Read through poem after poem of reversible verse and experience your favorite tales in a whole new light.

Read from top to bottom to hear about Snow White caring for the dwarfs. Flip it around and you'll find a sinister monologue of the step-mother's poison apple.

Did you know about the double life of Cinderella?

"Isn't life unfair? / Stuck in a corner, / while they're waiting for a chance / with the prince, / dancing waltz after waltz / at the ball, / I'll be shining / these shoes / till the clock strikes midnight."

"Till the clock strikes midnight, / these shoes! / I'll be shining / at the ball, / dancing waltz after waltz / with the prince / while they're waiting for a chance, / stuck in a corner. / Isn't life unfair?"

Accompanied by exquisite, double-sided illustrations and thought-twisting ideas, Mirror Mirror flips language and fairy tales completely on their heads.

Aren't they the fairy tales you've always known? The fairy tales you've always known, they aren't...
