Shapes by PatrickGeorge Books
PatrickGeorge are a superb illustration and design company based in Ramsgate who also create and publish a series of high quality books for young people. These hardback books have a special idea to create an interactive experience for young readers; pages of images are interspersed with a transparent page that changes the image as it is turned. The clever device leads to an understanding of consquences, from what happens if you mix red and blue to closing a cage and capturing an animal.
In Shapes, follow the story of the mysterious red box as it travels by air, over land, across the ocean, through night and day, on a journey through shapes. Just flip the transparent page back and forth to reveal the different shapes and watch the pictures underneath change…Packed with ideas it provokes many opportunities for discussion and further reading and learning, with its simple and cleverly-executed design.
