The Shapes Trilogy
This book is about Square. Square spends every day taking blocks from a pile below the ground to a pile above the ground. This book is also about Square’s friend Circle. Circle thinks Square is an artistic genius. But is he really? With the second story in a trilogy of tales about Triangle, Square, and Circle, multi-award-winning, New York Times best-selling duo Mac Barnett and Jon Klassen nudge readers toward a more well-rounded way of looking at things. Understated and striking in its simplicity, this funny, thoughtful offering from two of today’s most talented picture-book creators emphasizes the importance of keeping your eyes—and your mind—open to wonder where others see only rubble and rocks.

“This book takes a sweeter turn from its prankish predecessor. . . . A must purchase that will satisfy old fans and create new ones.” —School Library Journal (starred review)
