What is an antonym? You'll find the answer inside this clever book. Author Brian P. Cleary and illustrator Brian Gable creatively clarify (not confuse) the concept of antonyms. Their clever (not foolish) rhymes and comical (not serious) illustrations combine to highlight key words. Each pair or group of antonyms is printed in color for easy identification.

About the Author:

Brian P. Cleary is the creator of the best-selling Words Are CATegorical(tm) series, now a 13-volume set with more than 2 million copies in print. He is also the author of the Math Is CATegorical(tm) series and the single titles Rainbow Soup: Adventures in Poetry, Rhyme and PUNishment: Adventures in Wordplay, Eight Wild Nights: A Family Hanukkah Tale, Peanut Butter and Jellyfishes: A Very Silly Alphabet Book and The Laugh Stand: Adventures in Humor. Mr. Cleary lives in Cleveland, Ohio.

Brian Gable is the illustrator of several Words Are CATegorical(tm) books, as well as the Make Me Laugh joke books and the Math Is CATegorical(tm) series. Mr. Gable lives in Toronto, Canada, where he also works as a political cartoonist for the Globe and Mail newspaper.

From School Library Journal:

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.–Kathleen Meulen, Blakely Elementary School, Bainbridge Island, WA
