About The Hueys in What’s The Opposite?

Explore the humorous world of opposites with the #1 bestselling illustrator of The Day the Crayons Quit and his band of Hueys!

“What’s the opposite of the beginning?” A sensible question to ask when opening a book that teaches the reader about opposites. But maybe we should start with something a little easier? For example, it’s quite unlucky when a Huey finds himself stranded on a hot, deserted island—but how lucky it is when a fan arrives to provide some cool air! Oh, wait . . . nowhere to plug it in? Unlucky, once again. Now for a harder one: What’s the difference between half full and half empty?

Stumped? Don’t worry, that one will make a Huey’s head hurt too.

In this funny concept book from the illustrator of the #1 New York Times bestselling The Day the Crayons Quit, Oliver Jeffers takes us on a delightful ride through the world of contraries.

Our Thoughts on The Hueys in What’s the Opposite?

If you’ve followed my blog for any amount of time, you will know that I’m a die-hard fan of Oliver Jeffers. The man is seriously funny and I love his distinct illustrations.

I’ve been reading What’s the Opposite to my five year old, and she loves it. She gets the humor in Jeffers’s books and likes his unique way of teaching concepts. While this book isn’t quite as quirky as None the Number, it is still a hit in our house. We’ve learned opposites like up and down, half full and half empty, and even some less obvious ones like lucky and unlucky. This is a wonderful book if you are looking for books on opposites or good books that teach concepts, especially if you appreciate a humorous twist.
