Square

Publisher: Walker Books

Square spends his days taking square blocks from his cave and piling them above ground: this is his work, although we don’t know why. One day, Circle comes along, admires Square’s “artwork” and asks him to make a sculpture of her.

Agonising over his inability to chop his square blocks into the perfect circle, Square inadvertently manages to fulfil his artistic brief after all – but he isn’t sure whether his new “genius” persona is entirely justified...

Barnett and Klassen are a perfect team to deliver a smart and funny book that manages to have sophisticated connotations about the creation, intention and reception of art, as well as reassuring children about their own artistic development.

Klassen’s iconic illustration style, full of the trademark Klassen eye expressions, continue to give simple characters personality, humour and enduring appeal.
