Pomelo's Opposites
Enchanted Lion Books | August 2013

Pomelo, our elefantastic hero, is here he again in a surprisingly comic and playful book of opposites. True to the concept, there are classic oppositions such as left/right, thin/fat, up/down. There are also philosophical opposites, such as with/without, dream/reality, and possibly/impossible. And then there are silly, surreal and laughoutloud opposites, for the reader to discover on her own!


Benjamin Chaud lives and works in Paris. He has illustrated an impressive number of picture books and has written at least one as well.
