Synopsis

Synopsis

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.
Praise

Praise

Horacek contrasts 20 animals, using flaps, pop-ups, and stylish mixed-media paintings to highlight the differences between them. ... [E]ven if readers guess what opposite term is coming up next (if not the animal), they’ll find the execution delightful.
—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

An elegant exploration of an ever-popular subject.
—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Horacek’s pop-up book serves a few purposes beautifully. It features animals, including more unusual creatures like sloths and meerkats. It teaches the concept of opposites — my favorite poses the ‘heavy hippo’ against the ‘light butterfly.’
—The Boston Globe
