Hardcover Í The Opposite Kindle Ò


The Opposite A playful look at opposites from this exciting new picture book author and acclaimed illustrator A little boy wakes up one morning to see The Opposite sitting on his ceiling This impish creature manages to ensure that whatever the little boy says the opposite will be true The little boy tries to rectify everything as it goes wrong but the mess in the kitchen and the classroom soon gets him into trouble It takes some very uick thinking and a clever twist for him to be able to get rid of the Opposite once and for all I'm still not entirely sure how I feel about this book it's a very clever idea but I wonder if it's too clever for the target audience It seems like a children's book written for grown ups I will have to wait until my baby is much older to see whether or not she agrees So fun It's like reverse psychology explained for kids And we know how much kids love doing the opposite especially when it come to chores and other not so fun activities Love this uirky fun read aloud Favorite line But then the opposite happened Kids love this read aloud and I love reading it to them This book is a great read I like this creature the opposite because he is so incredibly uniue its not like monsters or fairies or common fantasy creations This is one that causes you to think even though I am not a child it still caused me to think about what it meant when it said that the opposite happened at one point I didn't know if that meant that the opposite had appeared in the scene or if literally the opposite of what he was told to do happened Therefore the book kept me enthralled the whole way I also like how Nate comes to realise how to deal with the opposite its a great way for kids to critically think about ways in which Nate can deal with it before reading the ending where we see how Nate deals with him in a wise way This is defidently a book I would use in my classroom
