Sorry if this has already been asked.

I'm looking for books where the art is showing the opposite of the text.

Thanks!

I have one coming out on May 2. It's called CARING FOR YOUR LION. In this book, the text states how easy it is to take care of a lion, but the art shows the opposite.

It was so much fun writing a book with this approach!

Thanks Tammi! But how will I wait til May. :-P  I'm writing a 2nd POV where the MC is gushing about her ability but the art is to show what a mess it is. I'm trying to get the language pitch-perfect.

It's not quite a perfect fit, but check out Officer Buckle and Gloria. Officer Buckle gives safety presentations to schools, and his dog Gloria goofs on him behind his back. Such a great story!

The Olivia books have at least a few pages of this in each book (although I haven't read them all, so take that with a grain of salt).

There are several pages that meet this description in Mac Barnett's Billy Twitters and his Blue Whale Problem.
