TOO HOT TO HOOT

A scant seventeen scrambled palindromes, with a moderately stylish black-and-white picture providing clues for each, and an appended answer page that must be held to the mirror. After the title phrase (presented as OTO OTH TO OTOH and decorated with an elegant owl cradled, drooping, on a giant cactus), one deciphers a llama mall (MALLA LALM), an executive office, invaded by animals, where all the bosses sob ((SEBOS OBS), and, similarly scrambled, such old standbys as ""a man, a plan, a canal, Panama."" An ingenious time-filler, but more than the letters are out of place when it appears between hard covers instead of boxed in a classroom magazine.
