Summary

Summary

A little mouse humorously introduces readers to ten two-dimensional shapes, starting with the simplest. He bends a stick into a circle, oval, rectangle, trapezoid, and so on, showing how each shape can be stretched, pulled, or pushed into another.

Publisher's Weekly Review

What a Concept Jim Arnosky's Mouse Shapes: A Very First Book showcases a rascally rodent wreaking geometric havoc in a tiny trim size (roughly 5\" 4Y"). Wordless opening pages show the mouse bending a big twig into a circle. The word "Circle" appears when he successfully makes the shape. In the next series of drawings, the mouse hops on top to squish the circle into an oval; then Arnosky stretches readers' brains when the fellow forms a "parallelogram," a "trapezoid" and a "pentagon." Armed with a paintbrush, the hero mixes highly recognizable hues in Mouse Colors: A Very First Book. ( Sept.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
