May Book of the Month

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?

The second instalment in the exciting new shape trilogy from Jon Klassen and Mac Barnett wittily explores challenges and how to resolve them. Klassen’s illustrations are seemingly simple yet so expressive.
