Synopsis: Whether we are pretty ugly or terribly cute, weve all faced a minor catastrophe, made an original copy, or taken a calculated risk. And there are those of us who have turned up missing (sometimes accidentally on purpose).Good grief! These are oxymorons, common expressions made up of two completely contradictory words or elements.Jon Agee follows up his critically acclaimed palindrome books with a collection of over fifty of these strangely familiar phrases, each accompanied by a seriously hilarious illustration. Children and adults alike will be awfully amused by this small masterpiecedestined to be an instant classic!
About the Author: Jon Agee is the author and illustrator of ten books for children, inluding The Return of Freddy LeGrand (a School Library Journal Best Book of 1992), The Incredible Painting of Felix Clousseau (an ALA Notable Childrens Book), and Dmitri the Astronaut, named one of the ten best picture books of 1996 by The New York Times. He lives in New York City.
