`A triangle is trying to find her place in the world in this charming take on making friends and inclusion, which doubles up as a creative introduction to shapes and patterns. First from a debut husband-and-wife team.' Bookseller `This is the ideal introduction to shapes, disguised as a touching story about belonging and cooperation.' The Daily Mail `A deceptively simple story about geometric shapes with a lot of heart - addressing complex themes in a fun and playful way. ' Coralie Bickford-Smith `This joyful and appealing story is an entertaining and imaginative exploration of shapes as well as a warm-hearted affirmation of the many human rewards of individuality, inclusion and friendship. ' The Lancashire Post `There are plenty of layers to this gorgeous story about fitting in - by being true to yourself. ' My Book Corner `A wonderful book about shapes, diversity and being true to yourself.' Mum's School of Fun `This book touches on the importance of diversity and inclusion in such a clever and fun way.' The Parent Rookie `This book manages to incorporate shapes, colours and an underlying theme of appreciating and accepting differences between us.
