From the creator of A Book of Sleep and A Book of Babies comes a beautiful new book of animals—and opposites!
The sky is dark and the Opposite Zoo is CLOSED. But the monkey's cage is OPEN! Time to explore. . .
Follow the monkey as he visits all the animals in the zoo: fast and slow, big and small, noisy and quiet, soft and prickly! Filled with energetic illustrations, friendly animals, and a clear, simple text—all wrapped up in a gorgeous package—The Opposite Zoo is a fun and lively introduction to animals and opposites for the youngest picture-book audience.

"Na brings fresh energy to the familiar. With a coloring style that feels as if someone took a firecracker to a box of crayons, Na makes turtle shells as dynamic as a peacock’s plumage." --The New York Times Book Review

This is a nice, simple book about a monkey going around the zoo and seeing all of the opposites there. There are minimum words (one spread only says “Tall short”), and make it an easy book for kids to try to read. Families could have a nice time reading this book together, and it really helps if you read the opposites in funny voices out-loud . Mr. Na’s illustrations really exhibit the opposites – they have a good contrast quality to them. They are also whimsical and very pleasant to look at. Kids will like looking at them while reading the book. *note* I voluntarily read an advanced reader copy of this book
