There are many books to teach opposites, but few are as enjoyable as this one. Featuring appealingly retro illustrations, 40 sturdy interactive elements that conceal and then reveal each surprise, and twenty pairs of words that move beyond the basics to tame the wild world of contrary language, this concept book packs an immense amount of entertainment into a tiny package that children AND adults will love. Who knew that opposites could be such fun?
