Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Basher: Go! Go! Bobo Shapes created and illustrated by Simon Basher:
 
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.

Review:

"Basher brings his distinctive line of informational books to an even younger audience with the introduction of BoBo, a marshmallow-headed little guy with an urge to bounce (a bandage on his forehead suggests a propensity for accidents). In this outing, glossy shapes appear at left, while BoBo bounces past them and into scenes in which they are featured (he splashes out of a pool of water containing boats with triangular sails, careens between rectangular flat-screen TVs, and launches himself into a clump of heart-shaped balloons). It's a vibrant and playful primer on the topic. Available simultaneously: Colors. Up to age 4. (Apr.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Synopsis:

In Shapes, watch the lovable (but accident-prone!) Bobo bounce through bright, bold scenes,

meeting round buttons, square presents and triangular trees on his way. The outline of each

two-dimensional shape is embossed, allowing children to trace and learn the shape. Further

titles in the series include Numbers, Colours and Opposites.
