Square - Mac Barnett & Jon Klassen
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 says Square is a genius sculptor: 'This is a wonderful statue. It looks just like you!' But now Circle wants a circle sculpture of her own. Can Square manage to create one? It's hard to create something perfect…
This is the second instalment of the shape trilogy by the wonderful duo of Mac Barnett and Jon Klassen. Barnett's wonderfully original storytelling and dry wit combines with Klassen's minimalist but joyous illustrations to superb effect. This is a gorgeous hardback book with rounded corners - a perfect gift!
