Frida and Bear Play the Shape Game!

author: Anthony Browne
illustrators: Anthony Browne; Hanne Bartholin

Frida and Bear love to draw. But what should they draw? First Frida draws a shape and gives it to Bear. “Try to turn this shape into something,” she says. Bear looks at the shape and adds a bit more, and now it’s a puppy! Then it’s Frida’s turn, and before they know it, they’ve drawn a big fish and a funny pig, a monkey from a scrap of wrapping paper, and a butterfly out of a twig. A simple idea spurs endless possibilities in a winner from Anthony Browne and Hanne Bartholin.

The inimitable Anthony Brown and co-creator Hanne Bartholin invite young artists to play the shape game—and get creative.
