Brilliant hues, simple shapes, and a splashy pop-out surprise draw the youngest of readers to this clever concept book about actions and their opposites.

No matter what Duckie does, it seems her friends do the opposite! When Duckie looks up, Kingfisher looks down. When Duckie hops forward, Frog hops backward. And of course, when Duckie runs in front, Lizard runs behind. Little ones reading this bright, beguiling board book will happily predict the pattern that follows but will be caught by surprise by a final pop-out -- as Duckie jumps into a pond and a number of colorful fish really do jump out.
