Jon Agee. Farrar Straus Giroux, $16.61 (112pp) ISBN 978-0-374-35730-6

Even the price is a palindrome in Jon Agee's latest witty collection, Palindromania!, the fourth title in a series that started with Go Hang a Salami! I'm a Lasagna Hog! The oblong edition runneth over with clever b&w cartoons. ""In the Garden"" imagines an offbeat Biblical encounter (""Eve?/ Sir, I'm Iris./ Madam, I'm Adam""). In another panel, a solo pill bottle is labeled ""Lonely Tylenol."" (Oct.)
