Author: Oliver Jeffers
Publisher: HarperCollins Children's Books
Explore the humorous world of opposites with the #1 bestselling illustrator of "The Day the Crayons Quit "and his band of Hueys "What's the opposite of"the beginning"?" A sensible question to ask when opening a book that teaches the reader about opposites. But maybe we should start with something a little easier? For example, it's quite"unlucky"when a Huey finds himself stranded on a hot, deserted island but how "lucky"it is when a fan arrives to provide some cool air Oh, wait . . . nowhere to plug it in? "Unlucky," once again. Now for a harder one: What s the difference between "half full"and"half empty"? Stumped? Don t worry, that one will make a Huey s head hurt too. Inthis funny concept book from the illustrator of the #1 "New York Times "bestselling "The Day the Crayons Quit," Oliver Jeffers takes us on a delightful ride through the world of contraries. Praise for "The Hueys in What's the Opposite?" * "Even readers who know the basics of opposites will get their minds blown here, as a glass is considered half full on one page but also half empty on the next. It s not easy to be so very simple and so very clever, but Jeffers manages in this laugh-aloud offering that will get groups giggling." "Booklist," starred review * "An amusing twist on the traditional concept book by a beloved master of shape and line." "School Library Journal," starred review "A clever concept book from beginning to end."" Kirkus Reviews""
