Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

At this zoo: the toucan tells the anteater which one of them is up and which is down. The flamingo thinks she’s nice . . . and that the gorilla is grouchy. And the giraffe peers over the fence to let the penguins know that he’s tall and they’re short.  Sly humor and zany visual make an important point about differences.

Review:

"This fun book offers a lesson on opposites: 'I'm nice,' says a cheery pink flamingo to a somber-looking blue gorilla, adding, 'You're grouchy.' Elsewhere, a green alligator balances on a floating log ('I'm on. You're off,' he explains to a nearby buzzing bee) and a giraffe leans over a cluster of penguins ('I'm tall. You're short').The opinionated animals, who come across as (surprisingly likable) know-it-alls as they shout at their companions, finally go to sleep. 'I'm awake. They're asleep. Whew!' says the zookeeper. Ages 4 — 8. (June)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

In this lighthearted opposites book, the toucan wants to let the anteater know which one of them is up and which is down. The flamingo thinks she's nice . . . and that the gorilla is grouchy. And the giraffe is peering over the fence to let the penguins know he's tall and they're short.

Ethan Long's novelty books Tickle the Duck and Stop Kissing Me are smash hits, and he brings a sly humor and creativity to his first book with Blue Apple.
