The Lovereading4Kids comment

There are many books of opposites, none like this. Opposites – big, small; messy, tidy; loud, quiet – are illustrated via vivid, stylish depictions of animals. A giraffe for example is high – so high there’s simply not room to depict neck or head, while on the opposite page a brightly coloured snake slithers through the grass to illustrate low. Some concepts are startling in their vocabulary – a peacock, tail outspread, is ‘fancy’ while a crow on the facing page is ‘sober’. Each picture tells a story too, the tiger up close licking its lips while three antelope - ‘far’ - tear off into the distance on the opposite page. A book that combines learning and discovery, words and pictures working together perfectly. ~ Andrea Reece


Alone Together by Clayton Junior

Looking at opposites and contrasts through unusual and humorous examples in the animal world, this charming picture book will spark conversations between adult and child and is a great introduction to a key early years concept. Its bold, colourful illustrations are perfect for parents and young children to explore together and to pour over time and again.
