Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 1–Two animals are compared on each spread using interactive elements. The ordinary opposites are provided, e.g., “Heavy Hippo/Light Butterfly,” “Short Dog/Tall Giraffe,” and Fat Pig/Thin Meerkat,” but some less predictable pairings are also included, such as “Still Sloth/Bouncy Kangaroo,” “Smooth Frog/Spiky Porcupine,” and “Quiet Rabbit/Loud Lion.” Some pages have flaps while others provide a pop-up version of the animal. Horácek's bright watercolor washes fill the majority of the background with enough balance of white on the opposite page to showcase the realistically colored animals. Kids will love the engaging illustrations and will be drawn to the book again and again despite the simple content because of the hands-on manipulations. Great fun.–Sandra Welzenbach, Villarreal Elementary School, San Antonio, TXα(c) Copyright 2013. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.

Review

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

I saw this book listed as one of the best books for little ones this year. I bought if sight unseen and was delighted. (So was my grandson) Very clever illustrations and construction in this book. A must for the 2-4 year old learning about opposites!

This is a wonderful book! After purchasing a copy for my grandchild, I realized that I just had to purchase one for my classroom as well. I read it to the children the day after it arrived, and they loved it as much as I did.

The pop-ups are bright, eye-catching, and well executed. The colors are exciting.The opposites chosen are not the usual ones we think of when trying to explain opposites. And the elephant at the end is ENORMOUS!

Such an awesome popup book. Super vibrant and quality like the ones I remember from my childhood. I got this for my baby for Christmas so I haven't seen his reaction yet but definitely a hit with me right now!

The illustrations are beautiful and it's nice to have some unexpected animals appear. I love watching the baby's eyes travel up to see the tall giraffe. This isn't his favorite book yet, but it's one of mine.

My son just loves this book. He uses it so many times that we've had to restore some of the pop ups with tape.

Our toddler loves this book. He asks us to read it over and over. The illustrations and pop ups are great.
