Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Is your child exploring strange new words? Or are you simply a Trekkie who needs a goofy gift for a fellow-fan friend? The Star Trek Book of Opposites will transport you together to an exciting voyage of silly educational fun, pairing colorful photographs of Star Trek’s classic heroes and aliens to introduce the concept of opposites through immediate visual humor.

With the help of Kirk, Spock, and McCoy, you can teach children the meaning of happy and sad, open and closed, apart and together, and much more. With a hip, up-market design sensibility, The Star Trek Book of Opposites will make a great kitschy gift for Trekkies of all ages.

Review:

"This indulgently geeky board book uses images from the original Star Trek series to introduce words that are opposite (or at least contrary) in meaning. The white Mugato is 'furry,' while the lizardlike Gorn is 'scaly.' Smiling Uhura holds 'one' seemingly innocuous Tribble to her cheek, while a perplexed Kirk, covered with 'many' of the furry creatures, has discovered the real trouble with Tribbles. With a little cross-generational urging, young readers may warm to the 1960s-era stills, but the primary audience will likely be nostalgic adults. All ages. (Sept.)"

Synopsis:

EXPLORE STRANGE NEW WORDS!

WITH THE HELP OF Kirk, Spok, McCoy, and two dozen colorful pictures from across the galaxy, teach your children the meaning of big and little, hot and cold, apart and together, and much more!
