Multi-award-winning, New York Times best-selling duo Mac Barnett and Jon Klassen will be here to introduce the first book in their new shape series, TRIANGLE, a slyly funny tale about some very sneaky shapes.
"All the shapes have the same size eyes but with the triangle, you have to set the eyes way down in his body and, for some reason, that made him look shifty. All of sudden he became a trickster, whereas Square is just more solid and conservative because, well, because he's square." - Jon
