Pomelo, our ele-fantastic hero, is here again in a surprisingly comic and playful book of opposites. True to the concept, there are classic oppositions such as left/right, thin/fat, up/down. There are also philosophical opposites, such as with/without, dream/reality, and possible/impossible. And then there are silly, surreal, and laugh-out-loud opposites for the reader to discover on his or her own!

Pomelo's Opposites is the third book in our Pomelo the Garden Elephant series and is a companion volume (matching format) to Pomelo Explores Color. The first book, Pomelo Begins to Grow, was a New York Times Book Review Notable Book and Editors' Choice of 2011.

Ramona Badescu was born in 1980 in southern Romania. She arrived in France at the age of eleven and started to write for children ten years later. She lives in the wonderfully diverse French city of Marseille.

Benjamin Chaud lives and works in Paris, France. He has illustrated an impressive number of picture books and has written at least one as well.

Review:

Pomelo’s Opposites is the kind of book that can be enjoyed, at its simplest level, for its charming drawings and warm colors, but there’s more to be found on repeated readings." -- The New York Times

"Filled with whimsy, surprise, and pure fun. . . . Rich vocabulary ('stalagmite,' 'concave,' and 'gastropod,' for example) and deceptively subtle visual interpretations make this a great choice for parent-child sharing and discussion, but solo children will have no problem immersing themselves in the clever, playful, and deftly imagined illustrations." -- School Library Journal

“the kind of book that can be enjoyed, at its simplest level, for its charming drawings and warm colors, but there’s more to be found on repeated readings.” – The New York Times

“The speedy delivery of associations starts to feel like an exciting, wild ride. Images, words and meanings volley back and forth, bouncing from page to page and between this clever book and readers’ imaginations . . . Simple, sunny, silly illustrations brilliantly convey the complexities and joys one can unearth when tilling a garden of language.” – STARRED REVIEW, Kirkus Reviews

“This is a book that gets you thinking about the nature of opposites. Children can use it as a jumping off point for creating their own unusual opposites and illustrating them. Or just read it and laugh out loud at the great surprises waiting for you.” – Waking Brain Cells

“Less a study of true opposites than an invitation to open minds and imaginations.” – Publishers Weekly

“honest, it is actually just a great book. You simply cannot read it without smiling which is the sort of book we all need a little of.  I am once again thinking of several adults who would love it’s entertaining and rather lovely take on life’s big and small opposites.” -- The UBS Otago Review of Books

“Pomelo, our elefantastic hero, is here he again in a surprisingly comic and playful book of opposites. True to the concept, there are classic oppositions such as left/right, thin/fat, up/down. There are also philosophical opposites, such as with/without, dream/reality, and possibly/impossible. And then there are silly, surreal and laughoutloud opposites, for the reader to discover on her own!” – French Embassy in the United States

“Pomelo's Opposites really soars when Badescu and Chaud start thinking outside of the box. Ordinary and extraordinary, possible and impossible, pretend and real, gastropod and cucurbit, convex and concave and my favorite, having and being. This is that extra something that makes these books truly memorable and definitely worth giving.” – Books 4 Your Kids
