Opposites

The Schuberts (The Umbrella) are back with a normal/crazy, cold/hot book of Opposites.

From the first moment of seeing the terrier in The Umbrella, it was clear that the Schuberts have a knack for capturing expressive animals. 

In Opposites, the Schuberts have a blast as they present contrasts far beyond big and small. Best of all, the Schuberts let their imaginations fly as high as a crocodile--or perhaps flying crocodiles only happen in Schubert books?

A multitude of details will ensure requests for repeat readings.

Richly detailed pages with the inimitable Schubert wit
A fresh take on a traditional concept book

reviews

"Disparate beasts frolic in a variety of landscapes, all to demonstrate myriad combinations of opposite pairs. A dozen two-page spreads illustrate simple antonyms: big and small, hide and seek, naughty and nice, and more. The pictures are full of mischief. In treating wet and dry, for example, the left-hand, "Wet" page features various animals coping with a rainstorm. One raccoon finds shelter under a giraffe, while another frolics on the riverbank. A small frog high-steps with a big umbrella, and a squirrel and mole huddle under large green leaves. On the "Dry," right-hand page, a panda suns on a beach towel, a family of ducks swim in a pond with a frog lazing on the mother's back, a rhino dozes under a tree, etc. "Up" and "Down" includes a seesaw, a tall tree and tall, broad rocks with a tightrope stretching from one to another. Oh, yes, and an elephant's trunk poking up like a periscope from a hole. . . . Good fun for older preschoolers and early-elementary children eager to flex their conceptual muscles."
- Kirkus Reviews

"The team behind The Umbrella (2011) explores antonyms in busy scenes featuring a large cast of lively and personable animals. . . . Mischief abounds, and children will enjoy seeing the animals’ mini-dramas, love stories, and adventures unfold."
- Publishers Weekly
