Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In this small square book, twins Emily and Alex may look alike—both are lightly drawn with rounded faces and cropped reddish blonde hair—but they’re very different, as demonstrated through antonyms: “ugly” Alex, dressed in a dinosaur costume stalks “pretty” Emily, admiring herself in a mirror. And from “down” on the ground, Emily points at Alex, “up” in a tree. The siblings’ playful banter and the energy Barroux’s illustrations transmit make for an effective depiction of opposites. Also available: Naughty and Nice. Ages 3-up. (Apr.)
