Multi-award-winning, bestselling duo Mac Barnett and Jon Klassen conspire again on a slyly funny tale about some very sneaky shapes.

"Picture book lovers will find much to like in Triangle" Guardian

From the award-winning team behind Sam and Dave Dig a Hole, and illustrated by Jon Klassen, the Kate Greenaway-winning creator of This Is Not My Hat and I Want My Hat Back, comes the first tale in an exciting new trilogy. Meet Triangle. He is going to play a sneaky trick on his friend, Square. Or so Triangle thinks... Visually stunning and full of wry humour, here is a perfectly-paced treat that flips the traditional concept book, and approaches it from a whole new angle.

MEDIA REVIEWS
It's what you would expect from this pairing and then just a touch more genius. If you're not already aware of their work, we suggest you rectify that immediately. Filled with original storylines, uncomplicated but meaningful text, a discernible humour and instantly recognisable artwork, there's everything to appreciate about their work.[...] A story with a perfectly simple premise executed to perfection in the only way Barnett and Klassen know how." * Picture Books Blogger *
"Klassen's restrained earthy palette and minimalist scenes (those eloquent eyes again), are in perfect harmony with Barnett's even sparer, deadpan text allowing readers to step into the narrative landscape and fill for themselves, the host of gaps left by the book's genius creators. Prankish play or something more sinister? I come down on the side of the former. This book is the first of a planned trilogy from this formidable team: I eagerly anticipate the next one ... and the next." * Red Reading Hub *
"Mac Barnett's wily story and Jon Klassen's eyes-tell-all illustrations make Triangle a really fun read-aloud for preschoolers, early elementary kids, and their adults." * Boing Boing *
"The images are deceptively simple; the characters inhabit a world of triangles, squares and the "shapes with no names". Each is rendered beautifully. As with Klassen's solo work, the eyes reveal everything about the characters, bring two basic shapes-on-legs to life." * Irish Times Weekend *
"Brilliant and hilarious, award-winning Jon Klassen and Mac Barnett's Triangle is the gem of a book." * Julia Eccleshare LoveReading, Book of the Month *

“The joy of geometric shapes”

I love mathematics – with a particular interest in Shape and Symmetry. So, how could I resist an illustrated book called “Triangle”. Although I am a little older than the target audience of 3 – 7 year olds, I really... More

“Triangle”

I gave this book to my grandson who is 2 years and 10 months old. I had no idea if he would like the story as it is not illustrated in colour. He absolutely LOVES this book. He wants it read 2-3 times in succession.... More
