A playful look at "opposites" from this exciting new picture book author and acclaimed illustrator.
A little boy wakes up one morning to see The Opposite sitting on his ceiling. This impish creature manages to ensure that whatever the little boy says, the opposite will be true. The little boy tries to rectify everything as it goes wrong, but the mess in the kitchen and the classroom soon gets him into trouble.
It takes some very quick thinking, and a clever twist, for him to be able to get rid of the Opposite once and for all.
