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.

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.

I'm so curious to see what my kids will think of this one, they were so mixed on Triangle. Taking it home tonight.
These books are so weird.
Jon is one of my most favourite Canadian illustrators and his drawings shine here with "Square."
A quick read for any age and fun all around.
They two authors have collaborated on others books which I have put on my to-read list and library holds.
Wow. Dark and weird and funny. Kind of more of an adult book. You need to read Triangle to fully comprehend Square, and your thoughts about Triangle will change after reading Square.
I have mixed feelings about this book. After my initial reading my only thought was "Why was this so depressing?" and then gave it to my coworker to read to get her opinion. She felt that it was a downer as well.
Thinking about it past my gut feeling, I could see how there are two distinct perspectives in the book and that how we perceive ourselves is different from how others perceive us. Overall the book has potential to be too deep for children but they also can surprise you
I then gave the boo ...more
"Every day, Square goes down into his cave and takes a block from the pile below the ground. He pushes the block up and out of the cave. He brings the block to the pile at the top of the hill. This is his work."
I mean the art is John Klassen but the story is crap!
