Description



About the Book



Susan Hood and illustrator Jay Fleck lead us on a topsy-turvy fun-house journey into the concept of opposites and take it to the next level -- with detours into relative terms and points of view (and a dollop of yin and yang for good measure).



Book Synopsis



When it comes to opposites, it's all a matter of perspective! Lively text and fun retro art engage kids in the finer points of a favorite concept.

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).



Review Quotes




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

Readers are encouraged not to take things at first glance: an abstract composition of colored circles turns into a huge painting of a butterfly when viewed from a distance...Ideal for the thoughtful, deliberative child.
--Kirkus Reviews

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

Through rhyming text, this unassuming picture book clearly conveys the concept of perspective ("where you are can affect what you see") and advises readers to "consider all sides" a powerful and timely message. The classic sans serif black font injects some fun into the retro-style digital illustrations. Charming details make this book a pleasure to revisit.
--School Library Journal

It's a thought-provoking book that will prompt questions for child readers about perspective and point of view.
--Kirkus Reviews (blog)
