Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
This indulgently geeky board book uses images from the original Star Trek series to introduce words that are opposite (or at least contrary) in meaning. The white Mugato is "furry," while the lizardlike Gorn is "scaly." Smiling Uhura holds "one" seemingly innocuous Tribble to her cheek, while a perplexed Kirk, covered with "many" of the furry creatures, has discovered the real trouble with Tribbles. With a little cross-generational urging, young readers may warm to the 1960s-era stills, but the primary audience will likely be nostalgic adults. All ages. (Sept.)
From the Publisher
"Downright necessity for all those Trekkie parents out there." —Los Angeles Times

"Adorable and perfectly absurd, we think this might be one geeky gift not to miss." —Tor.com

"Nothing short of genius." —Geeks of Doom

"Will most definitely elicit smiles and laughs." —StarTrek.com

"Who needs ‘Sesame Street’ when Kirk, Spock and Bones can teach your kids vocabulary a warp speed." —Minneapolis Star Tribune

“Are you tired of all those boring, pedestrian, and antiquated board books for children that you are forced to read over and over again? Of course you are! That’s why creative authors like David Borgenicht are coming up with innovative board books that will keep you, the parent, from going insane. Behold the Star Trek Book of Opposites from Quirk Books.”—Neatorama.com
