BIG and Little Are NOT THE SAME

By Bob Ottum, illustrated by George Buckett
A Golden Tell-A-Tale Book, Western Publishing Company, 1972

This book focuses on opposites and shows what would happen if tall things were short or wet things were dry or happy things were sad. Ottum & Buckett infuse subtle humor throughout the book in the choice of animals to demonstrate the words' meanings and the superfluous little comments here and there reminding us to give the dog back his bone and that even if our food fell out of the lunchbox and we were hungry our puppy wouldn't be!
