A beautiful book of pop-up animals which demonstrate through opening flaps simple opposites including smooth frog and prickly porcupine, slow snail and fast cheetah, heavy hippo and light butterfly. The pictures are bold and colourful and make their points clearly. The flaps robust making this is perfect book for small hands. A delightful companion volume to Petr Horacek’s Animal Counting.
