Kindergarten-Grade 3 Cleary describes and illustrates antonyms from the obvious stop and go, yes and no, front and back, fast and slow, to the more obscure: excite and soothe, hefty and diminutive. He elaborates on reasons for celebrating opposites and also describes how to create them through the use of powerful prefixes such as un,dis, im, and non. The illustrations for some pairs must have been quite a challenge for Gable, for example, depicting absurd and somewhat normal in two cartoon drawings. The bouncy lettering style enhances the whimsical rhymes and makes for yet another strong addition to collections of books about the English language.
