Following the success of her two bestselling board books Hamsters Holding Hands and This Little Hamster, Kass Reich once again presents her signature dumpling-shaped hamsters. This time, the adorable critters demonstrate various opposites, from in and out to day and night, with some unexpected surprises! A cheerful board book that is sure to produce some giggles and make learning opposites fun.

School Library Journal - January 1, 2016
"A simple opposite book gets a comedic kick with the addition of a group of charming hamsters. Straightforward concepts like 'up and down' are complemented by more complex pairings, such as 'lost and found.' Each spread features cartoon-style drawings colored digitally in cheerful pastel hues. The facial expressions of each costume-wearing little rodent add humor."

"Colourful and chewworthy! The cute little hamsters show opposites like fast/slow, up/down and in/out. The pictures are funny, informative and colourful. This book will make a great addition to any home or public library."
Publishers Weekly, Starred - July 31, 2015
"The irrepressible rodents from Hamsters Holding Hands and This Little Hamster return to showcase opposites, and their antics should have children giggling from start to finish...Reich’s loosely outlined ovoid hamsters are full of energy and mischievousness, day or night, fast or slow, up or down."
CM Magazine - June 19, 2015
"A worthy purchase for libraries serving this preschool audience. Parents should also consider it as a home purchase."
