The brainchild of Argentine artist Max Dalton (The Lonely Phone Booth, Godine, 2010), Extreme Opposites combines superlatives and opposites to create a book that is both pedagogically superior (why teach your three-year-old just one grammatical category when she could be learning two, simultaneously?) and superlatively engaging. Knights and dragons, castaways and off-hour Santas, dinosaurs and pirates, mimes and scuba divers populate this imaginatively superior universe. And with just two words per page, you and your little one will have more time to linger over the irresistible illustrations and relish this recital of reverse attractions. Opposites have never been more droll, and less dull, than in graphic artist Max Dalton's all too amusing Extreme Opposites.
