"Expert wry humour and striking graphics" * The Bookseller *
"A board book on the outside - albeit with a minimalist jacket and stylishly curved corners - open it up and Square is beguiling, simple and amusing. [...] Inquisitive, witty an framed by peppermint-green and soft inky scribbles, awash with intelligence and depth, it's just lovely." * Women's Way Ireland *
"Inquisitive, witty and framed by peppermint-green and softy inky scribbles, awash with intelligence and depth, it's just lovely!" * Press Association *
"Barnett and Klassen are a perfect team to deliver a smart and funny book that manages to have sophisticated connotations about the creation, intention and reception of art, as well as reassuring children about their own artistic development." * BookTrust *
"This sequel to the award- winning author/illustrator team's equally offbeat Triangle is a typically original delight, full of minimalist images, dry humour and an undercurrent of philosophical debate." * The Daily Mail *
