Summary
Behold: an opposites book like no other. Simple pairings of words, both expected (small/large) and unexpected (clear/blurry), are humorously illustrated with a graphic and lovable red hippopotamus. Bold colors and surprising die-cuts and textures spice up this elegantly engaging board book.

Praise for Hippopposites

STARRED REVIEW
"French illustrator Coat blends a quirky sensibility with a slick visual aesthetic...it's an excellent (and fun) vehicle through which to demonstrate the concept."
-- Publishers Weekly, starred review

Award
2013 ALA/ALSC Notable Book
Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "French illustrator Coat blends a quirky sensibility with a slick visual aesthetic in a fairly comprehensive book about opposites starring a red hippopotamus that has been pared down to a bell-shaped head, a blockish behind, and two dots for eyes. The qualities and color of the hippo change to demonstrate antonyms like light and dark (the hippo is shown in pale yellow and black), thick and thin (its outline thickens), opaque and transparent, soft and rough (thanks to inset fur and burlap textures), and many more. The stocky, blocky hippo is more of a template than a character, but it's an excellent (and fun) vehicle through which to demonstrate the concept. Ages 1-4. (May) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
