From School Library Journal:

PreS-K-"In" and "out," "plain" and "fancy," "empty" and "full" are just a few of the opposites featured in this romp through the big top. MacDonald's artwork is brightly colored with crisp contrasts and clean lines. The images, created using cut-paper collages, are matched with two contrary phrases. Each spread can be manipulated in some way (flaps, pull tabs, wheels, foldouts) to demonstrate the concept. The simple presentation and well-designed paper-engineered components are sure to encourage interaction. Clever techniques include a rotating mouth to make a "happy" clown "sad," and a turning wheel makes it appear that the balls a monkey is juggling go "up" and "down." This engaging book will leave youngsters satisfied, yet wanting more.-Laura Butler, Mount Laurel Library, NJ (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
