Do you know opposites, yes or no? On. Off. Asleep. Awake. Opposites are a piece of cake . . . right? Not so fast! Time for a quick double take. Who knows what’s BIG unless there is SMALL? Does SHORT mean a thing except next to TALL? What is ABOVE and what is BELOW? The answer depends on who wants to know! Writer Susan Hood and illustrator Jay Fleck lead us on a topsy-turvy fun-house journey into the concept of opposites and takes it to the next level — with detours into relative terms and points of view (and a dollop of yin and yang for good measure).
Reviews from all around the world
"Hood’s rhyming prose gradually builds to a scene of a wild roller coaster ride, where she asks the reader to ‘do a quick double take.’ Fleck’s picture shows the cat tied to a helium balloon, but the cat is above and the balloon is below — a clue that proves that the right-side-up book is now upside down. It’s a satisfying highlight to a stimulating book. —The New York Times Book Review
"The brief rhyming text sets a playful tone, which is heightened by the cartoon-style digital illustrations...the simplicity and humorous touches make this engaging, useful, and fun—a winning combination. —Booklist Online
