An odd duck and a strange bird are best friends. They wake up on opposite day and try to do the whole day opposite from what they usually do. When they realize opposites of friends is enemies, they change their minds and go to bed. It must be a normal day because they are still friends.

'Dill & Bizzy Opposite Day' by Nora Ericson, illustrated by Lisa Ericson, is an adorable story about two best friends who can't seem to come to an understanding. This is mainly caused by Bizzy's insistence that Dill take part in opposite day, a day in which they do everything opposite of each other.

Dill, who is not too keen on this idea, attempts to voice objection as often as possible, even if just through his facial expressions, but his objections only cause Bizzy to be more insistent that the

Ericson, Nora Dill & Bizzy: Opposite Day, illustrated by Lisa Ericson. PCTURE BOOK. Harper, 2017. $17.

Dill and Bizzy are best of friends. When Bizzy wakes up first for once, Bizzy declares it must be Opposite Day. No matter Dill’s protests, Bizzy is right there with the opposite. Until, that is, Dill comes up with something Bizzy doesn’t want to be opposite at all.

I have not read the first Dill and Bizzy book, but I am very happy to meet them. This sister author/illustrator team makes a great p

This is such an adorable book. I love the sweet and quirky Dill and Bizzy and their unusual friendship. This book made me laugh out loud ("have a sour day!" is my favorite). But it goes deeper than that--it was sweet and heartwarming (cliche as that sounds). It opened up an important conversation with my kids about finding friends in unlikely places. The bright, happy illustrations are a real treat.

Students could follow pattern of book and add their own pages to the story.

3 1/2 stars. Opposite day has always been a source of great confusion. Which is part of the fun.

I liked the concept of the book, but the artwork didn't do anything for me.

Fun story, opposites are okay until it means you can't be best friends. Has some solid classroom appilcations.

I think this is a really cute book that would be perfect to introduce or teach the concept of opposite. the characters are adorable!
Jana
This fun picture book tells the story of two strange birds who are best friends. When one of them declares that the day is Opposite Day, all sorts of crazy things happen. Young readers will giggle and have fun imagining their own Opposite Day. This would be a great book to help with a study of opposites.

Poor Dill! I just wanted him to be able to escape the "opposite day" cycle!

Maybe because I knew these characters now, I liked this more than the first book in this series. Fun and playful, this should be a hit during storytimes. Classrooms may enjoy having their own Opposite Day!

I really wanted to like this book (and the first one) but all I can give it is the dreaded "ok" didn't love it so I can't rave...didn't hate it so I can't completely bash it! I think with the right audience...this could be fun! Maybe in a classroom setting to talk about opposites!

Bizzy usually sleeps in, but today she wakes up before Dill. Conclusion: It's Opposite Day! Bizzy goes crazy all day thinking of the amazing things they can do that is the opposite of what they usually do: Dinner instead of breakfast, wet instead of dry, diving to the ground instead of flying into the sky. Needless to say, Dill protests - but all his protests make Bizzy do more because it's opposite day. Until the realize if it is really opposite day, they are not best friends but worst enemies. ...more
