Inspiring, simple artistry introduces young children to a curious monkey on a full-circle journey through the zoo by night. Monkey's adventure creatively introduces opposites in context, that with every re-read brings new understanding for very young readers.
Publisher Summary
From the creator of A Book of Sleep and A Book of Babies comes a beautiful new book of animals—and opposites!

 

The sky is dark and the Opposite Zoo is CLOSED. But the monkey's cage is OPEN! Time to explore. . .

Follow the monkey as he visits all the animals in the zoo: fast and slow, big and small, noisy and quiet, soft and prickly! Filled with energetic illustrations, friendly animals, and a simple text, The Opposite Zoo is a fun and lively introduction to animals and opposites.

Praise for Il Sung Na:

“Il Sung Na’s illustrative art is so joyous, so jubilantly colorful, it feels celebratory and poetic even when the story is simple and spare.” —The Boston Globe (A Book of Babies)

“[A] grand read-aloud.” —Kirkus Reviews, Starred (Welcome Home, Bear)

"It’s the rare picture book that, upon arrival, feels as though it has been around for years already; Na’s belongs to this group.” —Publishers Weekly, Starred (A Book of Sleep)

"Vibrant [and] whimsical.” —School Library Journal, Starred (Snow Rabbit, Spring Rabbit)

After the zoo closes, a monkey slips out of his cage to explore the zoo, introducing the reader to the other animals and the idea of opposites.
