Everyone needs to learn their shapes—so why not have a little fun along the way? This is a story in which lessons on the basic shapes keep getting intruded upon by some wacky characters. What begins as a concept book about everyone’s geometric favorites soon defies expectations with a series of funny and imaginative twists. So…first comes the circle. Then the square and the triangle. Then the . . . emu pushing a pancake wagon down a hill?
Author-illustrator Kenneth Kraegel pairs a deadpan text with simple wood-grained shapes, interspersed with vibrant illustrations of animals engaged in hilariously absurd pastimes. Each page turn builds on the delicious anticipation the contrast creates to make this a unique and rollicking story-time hit.
