Elephant Elephant: A Book of Opposites

We received Francesco Pittau and Bernadette Gervais’ Book of Opposites as a beloved hand-me-down, and it is certainly both the most extensive and the silliest of all James’ opposite books. (He has a lot.) A single pair of elephants is used to illustrate concepts as simple as “clean and dirty,” “wide and narrow” to more complex combinations such as “plugged and unplugged,” “smooth and crumpled.” Who knew elephants were so versatile?! Be warned that some jokes are scatological, and some elephants are anatomically correct, if you care about such things. Giggle factor: James says, “It is funny. You may laugh.” Adult enjoyment: if you like extremely silly, quirky books. Illustrations: three jelly jars.
