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?

Recommended by:  Barb Langridge,


"Multi-award-winning, New York Times best-selling duo Mac Barnett and Jon Klassen conspire again on a slyly funny tale about some very sneaky shapes.

Meet Triangle. He is going to play a sneaky trick on his friend, Square. Or so Triangle thinks. . . . With this first tale in a new trilogy, partners in crime Mac Barnett and Jon Klassen will have readers wondering just who they can trust in a richly imagined world of shapes. Visually stunning and full of wry humor, here is a perfectly paced treat that could come only from the minds of two of today’s most irreverent — and talented — picture book creators."--from the publisher
