Overview

Vladimir Radunsky explores the world of shapes with brilliant graphics in a boxed set of fun, funky board books.

What shape is a cracker? A slice of pizza? A button? A toothbrush? Fun and witty, educational and artistic, four concept books by celebrated artist Vladimir Radunsky invite toddlers to discover the world of shapes - and the shapes in our world. Beaming with bright, graphic colors, each little board book is in the form of a different geometric shape and illustrates novel examples of that shape inside: a suitcase, a nose, a pair of glasses - even a dachshund! This sturdy boxed set, which can be tossed easily into a tote bag, is truly the eye-catching result of thinking "out of the box."

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publishers Weekly
What a Concept Four boldly colored, shaped board books packaged in a clear carrying case teach the concepts of Square Triangle Round Skinny by Vladimir Radunsky. A photo-collage of a slice of pizza (labeled) on a green-checked tablecloth appears in the triangle-shaped book; a dachshund takes up an entire long rectangular spread in the skinny book, and a clock appears (where else?) in the round book.

Children's Literature
I love board books. To work at all, they have to look good and feel good. It is a form of minimal art, designed for very young children. This collection of four books is at the top of the game. Round is green with an off center, scribbled sun on the cover, introducing us to the concept of round. A pumpkin, a clock, glasses and buttons reinforce the idea of the circle. Some of the illustrations are loose and jagged, while others are crisp. Triangle has a sailboat on the cover and in it's mere ten pages, illustrates a nose, a piece of pizza, sails, a street sign, and the letter A. Skinny has a skyscraper on the cover, but quickly changes perspective with a dachshund, and scale with a pencil. Square is blue and has photographs of crackers, collages of picture frames, and paintings of windows. This is a delightful collection that celebrates the imagination and the sensitivities of young children. 2002, Candlewick Press,
