PreS Up Adults and kids of all shapes and sizes are in for a treat with this outstanding wordless book. Hoban's full-colour photos have an astonishing clarity and glow to them. They include interesting and beautiful urban landscapes, portraits and still life. Children will have fun speculating about the photographsor they can simply enjoy them, no comment necessary. Looking at this book for shapes is a little like looking at a Cezanne for shapes. Nevertheless, circles, stars, triangles and even fancier geometric figures like trapezoids are here in abundance. The 11 figures represented, as well as the photographs, reach well beyond Hoban's earlier books about shapes. This book has an impressive technical quality of photographic reproduction and fine artistic content. Do your eyes a favour, and don't miss this one.
