"Some frogs are jumpy; some frogs are still./But how big is a pig? Tell me if you will!" Follow the trail of animal opposites to find out just how big a pig can be. With her felt, bead, and sequin illustrations, Clare Beaton crafts an unusual and appealing picture book that teaches young readers the concept of opposites, while drawing them ever onward to the droll conclusion. The non sequitur juxtapositions of barnyard idiosyncrasies will not faze the lively, circular minds of children in the slightest; in fact, it's almost as if a child's logic was behind the concept and text from the start! Beaton's handiwork has appeared in many other cleverly tactile picture books, including One Moose, Twenty Mice. (Ages 3 to 6) --Emilie CoulterAbout the Author:
