Lift the flaps to learn about opposites from the lovable dogs in this humorous board book. A small green dog runs across the page -- but a lift of the accordion flap stretches him out into a long, lanky pup. Dogs of all shapes and sizes transform into surprising new forms in this vibrant, interactive play on opposites.

Review quote

As a concept book, it offers a solid selection of oppositional pairs rendered concretely enough for young readers to understand the differences in the set. It also boasts innovative paper engineering, with a die-cut spotted dog that becomes a solidly colored pooch or an accordion fold that makes the long dog lengthy indeed.
--Kirkus Reviews In this stylish board book, French designer élo deploys doggos--and some cleverly placed lift flaps--to introduce youngsters to the concept of opposites...By the end of this imaginative, giggle-inducing romp, nonreaders may be transformed into readers, too.
