Bobo is off again in this exploration of shapes. Young readers can use their fingers to trace each embossed outline as they follow Bobo on his bouncy adventure through a range of familiar shapes. The book's simple bright design and energetic progression is sure to make Bobo a toddler favorite.
The Go! Go! Bobo board books are bright delights, filled with pictures of a bouncy baby zipping through the air amid a whole series of shapes or colors. Basher manages to make the simple books extra-attractive in several ways. In Shapes, for example, he shows a basic square and then has Bobo bounce through wrapped square packages in front of which square dice are visible. A circle leads to a bounce through buttons and oranges; a heart, to heart-shaped balloons and strawberries; and so on.
Simon Basher is the creator/illustrator of the best-selling informational book series that include The Periodic Table, Biology, and Astronomy. His illustration stye is described as a synergy of European graphic design and Japanese Manga character creation.
