Description


Lift the flaps to learn about opposites from the lovable dogs in this humorous board book.

A small green dog runs across the page — but a lift of the accordion flap stretches him out into a long, lanky pup. Dogs of all shapes and sizes transform into surprising new forms in this vibrant, interactive play on opposites.

Praise For…


As a concept book, it offers a solid selection of oppositional pairs rendered concretely enough for young readers to understand the differences in the set. It also boasts innovative paper engineering, with a die-cut spotted dog that becomes a solidly colored pooch or an accordion fold that makes the long dog lengthy indeed.
—Kirkus Reviews

In this stylish board book, French designer élo deploys doggos—and some cleverly placed lift flaps—to introduce youngsters to the concept of opposites...By the end of this imaginative, giggle-inducing romp, nonreaders may be transformed into readers, too.
