A minibombo book: a little book buzzing with a big idea.

This delightful tri colour book provides young children with a playful introduction to shapes. Meet triangle, square and circle. Mix them together and discover what other shapes can be made. From houses to trees and even a supersonic rocket! Your little ones will soon be finding shapes everywhere.

The companion title to Shapes, Reshape!


Shapes at Play A Minibombo Book by Silvia Borando

From minibombo, the creators of The White Book and Black Cat, White Cat comes a playful first book of shapes.

Meet the red triangles, the yellow squares and the blue circles, who have a great idea for a game: together, they want to see if they can make a brand new shape! Hopping and bouncing and - bump! - sometimes colliding, they soon realize that they can be anything they want to be! A little house or a speedy car, an apple tree or a runaway train, the possibilities are endless ...they might even be out of this world!

Exploring how triangles, squares and circles can be found all around us, minibombo introduce young readers to their very first shapes with playfulness, humour and in their trademark graphic style.
