What's Circle About

Publisher Summary

Multi-award-winning, New York Times best-selling duo Mac Barnett and Jon Klassen deliver the final wry and resonant tale about Triangle, Square, and Circle. This book is about Circle. This book is also about Circle’s friends, Triangle and Square. Also it is about a rule that Circle makes, and how she has to rescue Triangle when he breaks that rule. With their usual pitch-perfect pacing and subtle, sharp wit, Mac Barnett and Jon Klassen come full circle in the third and final chapter of their clever shapes trilogy.

We love this series, and this might be our favorite book in the shapes trilogy. I love how much Barnett and Klassen can say with so little, and my kids love the silly personalities and adventures of the shapes. This is definitely a series I’d pay full price to replace if something happened to our copies.
