The second installment in the shape trilogy from the dynamic dream-team of Jon Klassen and Mac Barnett.

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 five books together: Sam and Dave Dig a Hole, Extra Yarn, The Wolf, the Duck and the Mouse, 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.

Industry Reviews

"A typically original delight"
Daily Mail

"Expert wry humour and striking graphics"
The Bookseller

"A board book on the outside - albeit with a minimalist jacket and stylishly curved corners - open it up and Square is beguiling, simple and amusing. [...] Inquisitive, witty an framed by peppermint-green and soft inky scribbles, awash with intelligence and depth, it's just lovely."
Women's Way Ireland

"Inquisitive, witty and framed by peppermint-green and softy inky scribbles, awash with intelligence and depth, it's just lovely!"
