Description

See below for English description.

Voici Triangle. Il veut jouer un tour à son ami Carré. Mais Carré n'aime pas qu'on se moque de lui. Rira bien qui rira le dernier. L'association de l'humour ironique de Mac Bennett et des illustrations aux codes bien reconnaissables de Jon Klassen, plus fortes que jamais, fait de ce duo l'une des équipes les plus remarquables en littérature jeunesse.

 

Meet Triangle. He is going to play a sneaky trick on his friend, Square. Or so Triangle thinks… With this first tale in a new trilogy, partners in crime Mac Barnett and Jon Klassen will have readers wondering just who they can trust in a richly imagined world of shapes. Visually stunning and full of wry humor, here is a perfectly paced treat that could come only from the minds of two of today’s most irreverent—and talented—picture book creators.

Original title: Triangle

Editorial Review

« Les enfants seront intrigués par la narration ressemblant à celle que l'on trouve dans un conte de fées et s'amuseront à amorcer une discussion sur les motivations de ces personnages particuliers. » ~ Kirkus Reviews

« Tandis que l'humour de Max et Sam creusent, creusent, creusent... était plus subtil et rusé, cet affrontement de formes est de la bouffonnerie toute pure. » ~ Publishers Weekly

 

"Children will be intrigued by the fairy-tale quality of this narrative and may enjoy debating the motivations of its peculiar characters." — Kirkus Reviews

"Whereas the humor in Max et Sam creusent, creusent, creusent... was subtle and sly, this shape showdown is pure, antic buffoonery." — Publishers Weekly
