What Is an Antonym? One book is never enough to explore the wide range of antonyms! The zany (not ordinary) cats deliver loads of additional examples to illustrate the power of these opposites. Brian P. Cleary’s playful (not dull) verse and Brian Gable’s comical (not serious) cats turn traditional grammar lessons on end. Each pair of antonyms is printed in color for easy (not difficult) identification. Read this book aloud and share the delight of the sense—and nonsense—of words.
