Pomelo's Opposites (Pomelo the Garden Elephant)
Title: Pomelo's Opposites (Pomelo the Garden Elephant)
Author: Ramona Badescu
CONCEPT OPPOSITES E BADESCU
Pomelo the garden elephant explains such opposites as on and off, visible and invisible, and full and empty.
Pomelo, our ele-fantastic hero, is here again in a surprisingly comic and playful book of opposites. True to the concept, there are classic oppositions such as left/right, thin/fat, up/down. There are also philosophical opposites, such as with/without, dream/reality, and possible/impossible. And then there are silly, surreal, and laugh-out-loud opposites for the reader to discover on his or her own!
Pomelo’s Opposites is the third book in our Pomelo the Garden Elephant series and is a companion volume (matching format) to Pomelo Explores Color. The first book, Pomelo Begins to Grow, was a New York Times Book Review Notable Book and Editors’ Choice of 2011.
