A Julia Eccleshare Pick of the Month March 2018

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

A beautiful wordless book of opposites which will inspire young readers to think and imagine. In stylishly illustrations set onto an empty background a fancy peacock is contrasted with a sober blackbird, a big elephant with a small mouse, a slow tortoise with a fast cheetah and a stripy bee with a spotty ladybird. stimulating to look at and fun to talk about.  ~ Julia Eccleshare
