In this lighthearted offering, Geisel Honor winner Twohy uses a dog and cat to demonstrate opposites. There is a single word of text on most pages. Expressive and humorous cartoon illustrations clearly provide context on what each word means. For example, with the word wet, the illustration shows the dog giving the cat a sloppy kiss. For the word d In this lighthearted offering, Geisel Honor winner Twohy uses a dog and cat to demonstrate opposites. There is a single word of text on most pages. Expressive and humorous cartoon illustrations clearly provide context on what each word means. For example, with the word wet, the illustration shows the dog giving the cat a sloppy kiss. For the word dry, the illustrations show the cat drying itself off with the curtain. The art lends itself to discussion because of its silliness. The dog is happy and goofy and the cat is definitely serious. Drawings are mainly in yellow, green, blue, and gray, making it a very clean presentation. This would work well in a preschool storytime. VERDICT This is a useful and fun title for teaching opposites. It can be used in a group setting and will also appeal to families.–Robin Sofge, Prince William Public Library System, VA

"The playful and energetic yellow dog from Twohy's Geisel Honor-winning, alphabet-themed picutre book Oops, Pounce, Quick, Run! (rev. 1/16) is back to create some more mayhem in this concept book demonstrating opposites. The story opens with a double-page spread of a gray housecat curled up peacefully on a chair: the only text on the spread reads, "The playful and energetic yellow dog from Twohy's Geisel Honor-winning, alphabet-themed picutre book Oops, Pounce, Quick, Run! (rev. 1/16) is back to create some more mayhem in this concept book demonstrating opposites. The story opens with a double-page spread of a gray housecat curled up peacefully on a chair: the only text on the spread reads, 'Asleep.' A page-turn quickly disrupts this quiet moment as the rowdy dog bursts through an open window, and the text now reads, 'Awake' - and it's placed jaggedly on the page, as startled-looking as the cat it describes. A steady rhythm of straightforward opposites couplets follow, as the cat does everything in its power to shake off the persistent dog's 'Silly' trying-to-be-entertaining antics with a 'Serious' expression. Twohy's cartoony ink, felt-tipped pen, and watercolor illustrations directly reinforce the text and are surrounded by ample white space. Additionally, the thoughtful placement of the book's twenty-eightwords supports meaning, such as 'High' and 'Low' being positioned at the top and bottom of the respective pages. As such, this silly picture book also funtions as a seriously useful reader." -Patrick Gall, Horn Book
