The Lovereading4Kids comment
Award-winning Oliver Jeffers’s endearingly simple Hueys are always asking interesting questions to help them find out more. This time they want to know more about opposites. Some opposites are easy. Everyone knows that Down is the opposite of Up, that the opposite of High is Low and that Cold is what you are when you are not Hot. In his simple and witty illustrations Oliver Jeffers makes all opposites fun and the starting joke is particularly pleasingly played out. ~ Julia Eccleshare
Set includes a Book & a CD read by Jarvis Cocker.

A comic visual exploration of opposites, from prize-winning, internationally best-selling picture book maker, Oliver Jeffers. Audio read by Jarvis Cocker.
In this 4th title in the series, the Hueys explore the concept of opposites in their characteristically quirky way. Starting out with some easy ones like 'up' and 'down', they move on to ever more wildy imaginative examples, guaranteed to raise a smile! Packed full of visual humour, this book will be enjoyed by children and adults alike.
