Horacek contrasts 20 animals, using flaps, pop-ups, and stylish mixed-media paintings to highlight the differences between them. … [E]ven if readers guess what opposite term is coming up next (if not the animal), they’ll find the execution delightful.

An elegant exploration of an ever-popular subject.

Horacek’s pop-up book serves a few purposes beautifully. It features animals, including more unusual creatures like sloths and meerkats. It teaches the concept of opposites — my favorite poses the ‘heavy hippo’ against the ‘light butterfly.’
