Triangle by Mac Barnett and Jon Klassen
So many good reads to recommend for our youngest book lovers! We recently reviewed Little Red, The Bad Guys, and Baby Loves Quarks, and the hits keep on coming. Last fall, we mourned the last of Jon Klassen’s Hat series (We Found a Hat ), and fortunately we are now able to celebrate the first of a new trilogy with Triangle. The latest book is an ode to shapes, especially Triangle himself, the hero of the tale. He’s a bit of a trickster, out to play a sneaky trick on his friend Square. The sly humor of the story tricks not only Square, but Triangle, who ends up trapped in his own home. And there are clever surprises for us as readers, too. It’s the kind of intriguing picture book we have come to expect from both of these award-winning authors. Great for young audiences who appreciate the repetition and delightful illustrations–and a treat for adult readers, who love the wit and off-beat humor of the feud between the shapes, the emotions told only through the eyes. Lots of fun–and such a delight to know two more are in the works.
