Pop-ups are just one of the interactive aspects to this clever introduction to 18 opposite words from the creators of Wild Alphabet. By pulling and sliding tabs, readers can help an "ancient" pyramid rise out of the desert to become a modern high-rise, make an "empty" porthole window "full" of surprised-looking humans (and one dog), and see a "light" red balloon emerge from a "heavy" weight. Despite the simple vocabulary, there are some delightful surprises along the way. Among the best: a "big" planet Earth instantly becomes "small" when a giant hand swoops in to grab it. Ages 5–up.
