"Beaton... whips up bold, bright tableaux out of meticulously sewn felt ... and embellishes the fuzzy fabric with judicious use of beads and sequins. Here, a smiling pink piggy coaxes the audiences through a rhyming series about different kinds of opposites, ending each vignette with the title question... Beaton will have her audience's attention all sewn up" — Publishers Weekly
