The Greatest Opposites Book on Earth

Lee Singh, illus. by Tom Frost. Big Picture, $18.99 (16p) ISBN 978-0-7636-9554-5
Paper engineer Singh and illustrator Frost use a variety of circus acts—as well as flaps and other interactive elements—to show off various opposites, starting with a tent flap that swings from “closed” to “open” to let readers in to the show. In some of the subsequent scenes, one of three clowns who all look the “same” gets a pie to the face, leaving him “different”; a “few” acrobats stacked on top of each other expand into “many” in a paper doll–like chain; and a trapeze artist appears to swing from “near” to “far” with the lift of a flap. Colored in bold shades of vermilion, teal, and mustard, Frost’s images have a bold, graphic quality that evokes vintage circus posters. A stylish opposites primer. Ages 3–7. (Oct.)
