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.
Ingrid (1953) and Dieter (1947) Schubert were born in Germany. After the Academy of Design in Münster and the Academy of Art in Düsseldorf, they went to the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam. Their books for children are available in 21 languages and their work has been exhibited all over the world.
