When it comes to opposites, it's all a matter of perspective Lively text and fun retro art engage kids in the finer points of a favorite concept. Do you know opposites, yes or no? On. Off. Asleep. Awake. Opposites are a piece of cake . . . right? Not so fast Time for a quick double take. Who knows what's BIG unless there is SMALL? Does SHORT mean a thing except next to TALL? What is ABOVE and what is BELOW? The answer depends on who wants to know Writer Susan Hood and illustrator Jay Fleck lead us on a topsy-turvy fun-house journey into the concept of opposites and takes it to the next level -- with detours into relative terms and points of view (and a dollop of yin and yang for good measure).
