Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Published last year in France as Faut Pas Confondre, this unusual, often witty paper-over-board book--with one effusive script word per spread--uses die-cut holes to establish pairs of antonyms. In a typical sequence, "order" is represented by neat rows of shapes, including yellow circles, one of which is formed by a peephole; in the next spread, explaining "disorder," the yellow circle is still in its place, but the other shapes are strewn about. The shell of a snail climbing uphill in "slow" becomes the wheel of a car racing downhill for "fast"; in a more problematic pairing, red "pills" turn into red "candy." The jaunty artwork uses thick brushwork and just a few colors per spread to conjure its simple subjects: shapes, arrows, cartoon people rendered with the merest flourish of lines. This concept book has a playful, careless, intelligent quality that makes it amusing browsing for innocents and sophisticates, young and old, little and big.... All ages. (Sept.) Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
Children's Literature - Wendy Pollock-Gilson
Illustrations with die-cut holes introduce opposites such as up/down, light/heavy and gentle/fierce. Unfortunately several of the opposites and their illustrations do not work such as leaving/returning, boat/airplane, and foot/hand. There is a single word on each page which make this boring to read and there is no transition or continuity linking the pictures and text to any following pair of opposites. Librarians and teacher looking for a opposite concept book may want to search further.
School Library Journal
K-Gr 3-Tullet offers more than 30 pairs of words to contrast objects or concepts. Each pair is illustrated by a set of double-page spreads, with a hole through the right page of the first word in the pair allowing a partial view of its "opposite." Unfortunately, some of the pairs, such as "boat/airplane" or "pills/candy," are not true opposites. Also, the "empty" glass contains over an inch of green liquid. Some language or concepts are sophisticated, e.g., "complete/ruined," "abstract/concrete," or "intact/broken." The words themselves are written in cursive, another clue that this book is not for beginning readers. However, the simple, primary-colored illustrations and graphic design are not visually arresting or sophisticated enough to interest older children. Say hello/good-bye to this one.-Kathy Piehl, Minnesota State University, Mankato Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
A picture dictionary of antonyms, one word to a spread, where each word cleverly converts to its opposite or near-opposite with a turn of the page. Tullet's bold, brightly colored drawings work well to portray different characteristics of these opposites. Almost every page offers a die-cut hole that provides a hint of the word on the following page. A red dot on a boy's shirt, labeled nice, turns into a bright red, stuck-out tongue on the following page, labeled naughty. Many of the word pairs are familiar ones: near and far, up and down, etc. Others stretch the concept a bit—is the opposite of foot really a hand, or is pills the opposite of candy? The illustrations graphically convey the concept they represent, with clean appearing on a blank page, and dirty showing up on a smudge of ink and paint. (Picture book. 4-8)

    Excellent book for children just learning to speak

    I purchased this book for my nephew Devin when he was a little over a year old. He is now almost two and it is still his favorite book. When a child is starting to learn words this book captivates them because they may not be able to comprehend complete sentences but you can see the understanding in his eyes when you say 'complete' and 'broken' and there are two great illustrations of each. I really recommend this book. There was a also one great page that contains a bunch of objects that your child will be able to pick out when asked 'Where is the bottle? Where is the airplane? Where is the...'. There are lots of pages and the illustrations are great....
