Behold: an opposites book like no other. Simple pairings of words, both expected (small/large) and unexpected (clear/blurry), are humorously illustrated with a graphic and lovable red hippopotamus. Bold colors and surprising die-cuts and textures spice up this elegantly engaging board book. Praise for Hippopposites "Nicely done and a perfect gift, your favorite little one will love this book." -- KIWI Magazine "This is a marvelous introduction to linguistic nuance for the very young." -- The Wall Street Journal "A distinctive offering stands out in the crowded field of concept contenders." -- Kirkus Reviews STARRED REVIEW "French illustrator Coat blends a quirky sensibility with a slick visual aesthetic...it's an excellent (and fun) vehicle through which to demonstrate the concept." -- Publishers Weekly, starred review Award 2013 ALA/ALSC Notable Book

Kids loved it so much they checked it out again recently after 6 months or so

Very fun. The kids loved it! Some of the opposites were a little bit of a stretch, but this would be a great language/vocabulary builder for young children.
