Description

Prepare to be amazed as two teams of Colors and Shapes compete for the top prize at a spectacular talent show! Which team deserves the spotlight? Colors can really mix it up, but nobody stacks higher than Shapes. How will the judges ever pick a winner? Ultimately, author-illustrator Mike Boldt reveals the amazing things that can happen when Colors and Shapes come together. A follow-up to 123 versus ABC, this zany picture book is a fun introduction to simple but important concepts, and a stepping-stone to basic geometry.

Review quote

"Readers won't care whether it's about letters of numbers - they will be too busy poring over the artwork and laughing." -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review) for 123 VERSUS ABC "Boldt's illustrations have a dimensional, painterly quality that recalls Adam Rex's work, and the absurd scenarios, strong-willed personalities, and visual gags will have kids laughing from A to 26." -- Publishers Weekly for 123 VERSUS ABC
