When is a circle not just a circle? When its pull-tab turns into a long string and you’re holding a big red balloon!

Overview

Help things take shape - and watch shapes turn into things! - in this bold, beautifully designed concept book by pop-up master Robert Crowther.

When is a circle not just a circle? When its pull-tab turns into a long string and you’re holding a big red balloon! Each brightly colored shape in this fascinating book is much more than it seems - just pull a tab and it morphs into an oval goldfish, say, or a rectangular suitcase, or a diamond-shaped kite. Then flip it over to find multiple flaps, each hiding an object of the same shape. The ideal companion to Robert Crowther’s COLORS, this conceptual tour de force will intrigue young readers - and have adults anxious to take their turn!

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The follow-up to Colors, Robert Crowther's Shapes boasts more than 30 flaps and pull-tabs to illustrate six shapes (circle, oval, square, rectangle, diamond and triangle). For example, the first page is a red die-cut circle labeled with its name; pull the tab and a string appears, transforming it into a balloon. With a turn of the page, layered circular flaps reveal labeled illustrations of round objects (pizza, ball, etc.).

Meet the Author

Robert Crowther discovered the wonders of 3-D illustration while still in art school. "I just loved the way things came alive when you did them in 3-D. Particularly when something starts out flat, then it moves. It is the surprise element." He has since gone on to create numerous acclaimed and astonishing pop-up books.
