A charming book, slim and tall with retro simplicity. Boyd helps toddlers explore opposites with a fresh new look and feel. Ages 3-5. — Jessica Wood


A New York Times Best Illustrated Book of 2015
In this artful and deceptively simple book, master book creator Lizi Boyd is at it again. Using her inimitable style to expand upon a familiar concept, she has created a compendium of unexpected opposites that is also a charming and emotionally warm story about Big Bear, little bear, and the stories that bring them together.
