This quirky opposite book is definitely for an older, more sophisticated child. My favorite spreads included the dinosaurs who were too late for Noah's ark compared to the rooster crowing too early in the morning, and the too easy/too difficult spread showing an archer shooting a gigantic apple on a head vs a team of surgeons looking at a textbook while performing surgery. Even the back of the book is the title and author's name written backwards. Max Dalton lives in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and he's illustrated another picture book called The Lonely Phone Booth which isn't available through OWLS, but that I'm looking forward to reading through Interlibrary Loan. Recommended for students in 1st grade and up.
