Circle

(2) K-3 Illustrated by Jon Klassen. While playing hide-and-seek with Square (Triangle; Square), Triangle breaks Circle's rule about not hiding behind the waterfall. Annoyed, Circle follows him into a dark cave until only expressively drawn eyes are visible. An unknown third pair causes the friends to flee, with philosophical Circle wondering what shape it was. Klassen's understated work with light, shadow, and texture in the graphite, watercolor, and digital illustrations carries Barnett's highly entertaining story full...circle.
