Over at Tennessee’s Chapter 16, I’ve got a Q&A with author Mac Barnett, who returns to Nashville next week (Parnassus Books) to talk about Circle, the latest book in the Shape trilogy. The Q&A — and more details on his bookstore visit — is here.

If you’d like to circle back here (see what I did there?) after you read the Q&A, I have below some of Jon Klassen’s illustrations from the book. [Pictured above is the title page illustration.]


“This is Circle’s waterfall.”

“It was quiet on the other side of the waterfall.
Circle called out, ‘Triangle! Triangle! Where are you?’
There was no answer.”
