What a ConceptJim Arnosky's Mouse Shapes: A Very First Book showcases a rascally rodent wreaking geometric havoc in a tiny trim size (roughly 5Ü" 4Ù"). 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.
