A fun science book that introduces animals and places around the world that happen to be exactly opposite each other on the globe, with pages that literally have to be turned upside-down. What is an antipode? If you dig through the earth directly below, where would you end up? Vibrant art and clear language make the science of geography, the seasons, and day and night easy to understand. The animals that live in these diverse places on earth make the science accessible and appealing to young readers. This is a book to savor and read over and over again.


This ingenious book blends geography and zoology in a fetching way that enchanted me from the front cover to its antipode on the back. I'm hooked! (David Schwartz Author of How Much is a Million? and G is for Googol)

When we talk about “digging to China,” we are speculating on where the antipode is from where we stand. Not only did I learn a new word and the surprise awaiting if you were to dig through to the other side, but this book’s illustrations, facts, and brilliance quite literally wowed me to my core! (Jesica Sweedler DeHart Wandering Bookseller and librarian at Neill Public Library)

"An engaging nonfiction picture book with vibrant colors, unique text
structure, and playful concept to make the subject matter easy to
understand." (JoEllen McCarthy Literacy Leader and Educator Collaborative Book Ambassador)
