Summary
A Parents Best Book of the Year!

Celebrated illustrator Petr Horácek offers a pop-up introduction to opposites with the help of a variety of creatures.

Turn the pages, lift the flaps, and see animals of all shapes and sizes bring the world of opposites to life. From slow snail to fast cheetah, heavy hippo to light butterfly, smooth frog to prickly porcupine, Petr Horácek's brightly colored pop-up animals and interactive flaps make early learning irresistible and fun.
Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "Horacek contrasts 20 animals, using flaps, pop-ups, and stylish mixed-media paintings to highlight the differences between them. A "short dog" appears opposite a large giraffe-spotted flap, hinting at the "tall" animal behind it. Elsewhere, a "quiet rabbit," sits small and timid against a marbled orange background, a pop-up lion roaring behind another flap; a slim meerkat forms the "i" in "thin"; and a "fast cheetah" rockets away from a "slow snail" with a chalky outline. Horacek subtly gives the animals personalities to match their characteristics, and even if readers guess what opposite term is coming up next (if not the animal), they'll find the execution delightful.
