Mac Barnett and Jon Klassen are just so doggone smart.
Meet Triangle. He's a simple fellow with big eyes that look out at you in a suspicious way. In fact, he bears a canny resemblance to a masked person. Something is clearly going on inside that little triangular brain.
Our potential hero/villain lives in a triangular house. His doorway is a triangle. Even the painting on the wall celebrates triangularity. It's a Triangles R Us situation.
One day Triangle goes to play a sneaky trick on Square. Heh heh heh. He leaves the land of triangle-ology, walks through the land of shapes with no names and arrives at Square's house ready to play his trick.
This is a subtle, mathematical adventure of devious shapes. Can they be trusted?
