JON KLASSEN and MAC BARNETT read from the final book in their shape trilogy CIRCLE | Skylight BooksLook Inside. Mar 05, ISBN years. This book is about Circle. Also it is about a rule that Circle makes, and how she has to rescue Triangle when he breaks that rule. With their usual pitch-perfect pacing and subtle, sharp wit, Mac Barnett and Jon Klassen come full circle in the third and final chapter of their clever shapes trilogy. With each shapes outing Klassen outdoes himself on doing much with little; in this case, the succession of spreads that go from gloomy to inky black, with only eyes to represent the characters, sets a high-water mark of minimalism that will be hard to beat but that works effortlessly and comedically within context. The book concludes by inviting the audience to join the shape friends in imagining what the being in the cave could be.

And Jon and Mac certainly know something about supporting a friend, as these two pals have collaborated on some outstanding picture books. MB: Jon and I spent months talking about who these characters were—their personalities, their feelings about each other, their daily routines—before we started making the first story about them. JK: Visually the idea was that we wanted the characters to be differentiated by very simple traits—shapes that everyone is familiar with, but nothing that really tells them what anybody is going to actually be like.
