Perfect Square

Perfect Square is happy being itself until it goes on a week long transformative journey9780061915130-150x150 (much like The Very Hungry Caterpillar, except in Perfect Square the change is imposed).  After that, “its four equal sides were confining. Its four matching corners were rigid and cramped,” and the square decides to transform itself again.

Michael Hall‘s lovely designs show a square can be so much more. Perfect for early geometry, art ideas and creative thinking, Perfect Square is for all ages, from the very young on up.
