Nice or Nasty: Book of Opposites

Nick Butterworth, Author Little Brown and Company $12.45 (25p) ISBN 978-0-316-11915-3
This is a funny book about opposites with immediate appeal, one that makes the concept readily understandable. Readers will find a memorable roller-coaster ride between up and down; first and last finishings of a race that also evoke the joy of victory and the agony of defeat; offerings of hamburgers or escargots that muster up either appetite or the lack of; hard and soft candy; hot dogs and ice cream; outdoor activities for day and indoor activities for nighttime. The humor in the illustrations is recognizable instantly, and the process of comparing and contrasting one picture with another will stay with readers. Ages 3-8. (May)
