Opposites DO attract in a witty new concept book

Big and small, square and round, clean and dirty, solid and liquid-a playful pair of pachyderms takes on all kinds of unexpected and humorous forms to illustrate a wide variety of opposites. Young readers will enjoy following the creative contrasts and transformations of the elephant duo, while older ones will appreciate the whimsical artwork, offbeat comedy, and unique design of the book.
