Every day, Square brings a block out of his cave and pushes it up a steep hill. This is his work. When Circle floats by, she declares Square a genius, a sculptor!
"This is a wonderful statue," she says. "It looks just like you!"
But now Circle wants a sculpture of her own, a circle! Will the genius manage to create one? Even accidentally?
About the Authors
Mac Barnett and Jon Klassen have made four books together: Sam and Dave Dig a Hole, Extra Yarn, Triangle and this book, Square. Jon is also the creator of the much-acclaimed Hat trilogy, which includes I Want My Hat Back, the Kate Greenaway and Caldecott Medal winner This Is Not My Hat and We Found a Hat. They both live in California, USA, but in different cities. Jon is from Canada, Mac is not.
"Expert wry humour and striking graphics" The Bookseller
"Inquisitive, witty and framed by peppermint-green and softy inky scribbles, awash with intelligence and depth, it's just lovely!" Press Association
"Barnett and Klassen are a perfect team to deliver a smart and funny book that manages to have sophisticated connotations about the creation, intention and reception of art, as well as reassuring children about their own artistic development." BookTrust
"This sequel to the award- winning author/illustrator team's equally offbeat Triangle is a typically original delight, full of minimalist images, dry humour and an undercurrent of philosophical debate." The Daily Mail
A funny, quirky and clever boardbook [...] Simple striking illustrations encourage us to keep our eyes open to what things really are. Spot on. a & u books
