Tales from Acorn Wood: Opposites

Publisher: Macmillan Children’s Books

From the team behind The Gruffalo, Tales from Acorn Wood introduced us to Postman Bear, Hide and Seek Pig, Rabbit and Fox in a series of stories for younger readers. Now these characters are back to help us learn about opposites in this glossy board book for little ones.

Each spread shows opposites in action; ‘Rabbit’s door is closed. Rat-a-tat! Who’s that?’ and ‘Now the door is open. It’s Rabbit’s friends. Surprise!’ with the opposite words repeated at the bottom of the page under the drawing.

The traditional illustration style and vignette layout will appeal to Axel Scheffler’s existing fans, and these little point-and-say books are a great gateway to the Tales from Acorn Wood series, which are perfect for little tots who are looking for a first story. Donaldson and Scheffler are already household names for those with young children, and now even the very newest members of the family can enjoy their work.
