Book review – Square

By Mac Barnett and Jon Klassen.

This book forms part of a trilogy along with Circle and Triangle. Circle features in this story too and she sees Square as a artist, which he feels he isn’t. Square spends the day and night sculpting a rock to try and impress Circle ‘who is perfect’. It’s possibly a slightly older theme about perception and how we feel about ourselves. The illustrations are typical of Jon’s style and are highly distinctive. They show that so much can be done with so little. Overall an abstract story but in a good way.
