“What’s the opposite of the beginning?” A sensible question to ask when opening a book that teaches the reader about opposites.

But maybe we should start with something a little easier?

For example, it’s quite unlucky when a Huey finds himself stranded on a hot, deserted island—but how lucky it is when a fan arrives to provide some cool air! Oh, wait . . . nowhere to plug it in? Unlucky, once again.

Now for a harder one: What’s the difference between half full and half empty?

Stumped? Don’t worry, that one will make a Huey’s head hurt too.
