The Shape Game


Formats & editions


A wonderfully original, thought-provoking and entertaining book inspired by Anthony Browne's work with children in the Tate gallery in London.

'I was a little boy and I didn't know what to expect. It was my mother's idea - that year for her birthday she wanted us all to go somewhere different. It turned out to be a day that changed my life forever.' A family reluctantly visits an art gallery but one by one each member is energized by a different picture in the gallery and transported into the imaginative and colourful world of art."
