The beguiling second entry in the innovative shape trilogy by multi-award-winning, New York Times best-selling duo Mac Barnett and Jon Klassen.
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, 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.
I think that Square is a humorous look at the creative process and the feelings of inadequacy we’ve all experienced. What I loved though, was that, while Square was feeling like he’d failed, Circle was completely in awe of his creation. A sweet message about the beauty our friends see in us. The questions at the end of each story in the trilogy are great conversation starters. -Hayley, mom to Jack (age 3), Boston, MA
