First came andlt;Iandgt;One Red Dotandlt;/Iandgt;, next andlt;Iandgt;Blue 2andlt;/Iandgt;, andlt;Iandgt;600 Black Spotsandlt;/Iandgt;...now Yellow Square, the fourth installment of David A. Carter's acclaimed color series! Modern and elegant paper engineering and text are certain to awe children of all ages!andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;Readers will search beatiful, modern pop-ups to discover the hidden yellow square on each spread in this follow up to David A. Carter's andlt;Iandgt;New York Timesandlt;/Iandgt; award winning, andlt;Iandgt;600 Black Spotsandlt;/Iandgt;.

Review:

"More child-friendly than last year's 600 Black Spots, the new addition to the series that began with One Red Dot is just as much an overture to exploring art. A yellow square hides in plain sight in or within the paper engineering on each spread; sometimes, the creation of the yellow square is entirely up to the reader. On the first spread, for example, that square exists only when the reader peers through a die-cut while holding the book at the correct angle — in other words, perspective is everything. Captions are variously enigmatic ('The fog of art/ and a yellow square,' for an elaborate windows — like construction topped in vellum) or childlike ('The cow jumped over the moon/ and a yellow square,' for an abstract paper sculpture). As before, Carter confines himself to primary colors, black and white; even with this palette, he alludes to a number of artists, among them Agam, whose name he spells out in a tribute piece; Christo, in a trio of wrapped structures; Miro; and Calder, via a trapeze with rotating flaps that stand in for performers. Not all the spreads are equally impressive, but the best are dazzlers. Ages 3 — up. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
