Gr 5-8-This complex book will work best for those who have already had some experience with anagrams, palindromes, and other such word forms. The exercises are challenging, with lots of examples that sometimes lack clarity. The use of the circus motif to link all these activities together seems forced at times, but the chapter "The Palindromedary" works well with the exercises tied to circus animals and actions. The simple, black-and-white drawings and old-fashioned circus pictorials are static and lend little life to the text. This is a book that, in spite of itself, offers a lot of fun and challenges.
