Double Take! A New Look at Opposites

By Susan Hood
Illustrated by Jay Fleck

When it comes to opposites, it’s all a matter of perspective! Lively text and fun retro art engage kids in the finer points of a favourite concept.

Get a whole new perspective on opposites in this stylish, fun and engaging picture book. Who knows what's BIG unless there is SMALL? Does SHORT mean a thing except next to TALL? Susan Hood, author of over 200 children's books, and illustrator Jay Fleck create a topsy-turvy journey that will make readers see the familiar concept of opposites in a different light.

  • A thought-provoking concept book for children who have mastered opposites, shapes and sizes, with an emphasis on relative relationships and point of view.
  • A boy, his cat and an elephant demonstrate different concepts, adding humour and making the topic fun and approachable.
  • Author Susan Hood has written over 200 children's books.
