MEDIA REVIEWS
I was THRILLED when this arrived via the team at Big Picture Press, a brilliant collaboration with Lee Singh, deceptively simplistic in it's 'Opposites' theme it is very cleverly curated, the flaps and cut-outs completely bring this zany circus show to life. Little hands will relish in the variety of interactive novelty elements and cheer and shout for this book at bedtime over and over again! Tom's work is incredibly accomplished, whilst being bold and bright in it's appeal to young readers, it is at the same time painfully cool. -- Emma O'Donovan * The Book Sniffer *
Roll up, roll up! Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls. If you're looking for a stylish, interactive and quirky 'opposites' book, then look no further. 'The Greatest Opposites Book on Earth' by Lee Singh and Tom Frost is an ingeniously crafted picture book and a clever piece of paper engineering. Bold, vivid illustration, coupled with pop-up pages and lift-the-flap elements make for a truly interactive experience for a younger audience. This concept book provides a plethora of opposites within the confines of a classic circus tent. Clean lines, bold shapes and a vintage-inspired palette make this the ultimate page-turner for both child and adult. Join the most stylish circus on earth, as we explore various opposites including 'wet' and 'dry' and 'near' and 'far'. Each with its own unique piece of interactivity. As big fans of Tom Frost's work, this highly stylised, circus-themed book does not disappoint and we hope he continues to make more picture books. This 'opposites' book is unlike anything else we've seen and the pop-up, fold down, pull out elements are highly engaging, no matter what your age! -- Sarah Yewman * Picture Books Blogger *
Big Picture Press always seem to exceed every expectation, and this is no exception. This clever lift-flap, pop-up book makes learning opposites all part of the game. Superb paper engineering and Tom Frost's circus-themed illustrations make this a book they will want to keep going back to, because the learning is a sideshow to having fun * Mr Fox Magazine *
Paper engineer Singh and illustrator Frost use a variety of circus acts-as well as flaps and other interactive elements-to show off various opposites, starting with a tent flap that swings from "closed" to "open" to let readers in to the show. In some of the subsequent scenes, one of three clowns who all look the "same" gets a pie to the face, leaving him "different"; a "few" acrobats stacked on top of each other expand into "many" in a paper doll-like chain; and a trapeze artist appears to swing from "near" to "far" with the lift of a flap. Colored in bold shades of vermilion, teal, and mustard, Frost's images have a bold, graphic quality that evokes vintage circus posters. A stylish opposites primer * publishers weekly *
