About the Author:

David A. Carter is a master paper engineer and creator of the Bugs series, which has sold more than 6 million copies. Also the author and illustrator of the critically acclaimed Color series, featuring One Red Dot, Blue 2, 600 Black Spots, Yellow Square, and White Noise, he lives in Auburn, California, with his wife and two daughters.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 1–6—Carter takes paper engineering to new creative heights in this fourth in a pop-up series that combines imagination-stirring visuals with open-ended texts and seek-and-find elements. Here, readers look for a yellow square incorporated into illustrations in primary colors that burst with clever innovations and visual effects. The shape appears in various hiding spots: on a tab that spins around "Uncle Theo's trapeze" (a bar raised into the air by two triangular supports), within a paper swirl that lifts—slinky like—into a tall spiral and then (amazingly) recoils back to a flat page, and as part of a giant 3-D "Doodle on white" sculpture. A removable square with a cut-out middle can be peered through to make yellow strips look like yellow boxes. "Square tubes bloom" as card-stock stalks blossom up from a blue background, each displaying a delicate flower, evoking the solidity and fluidity of coral. The pop-ups incorporate interesting materials—yarn, red netting (think vegetable packaging), and a translucent waxy paper that allows readers to view shapes through "the fog of art"—possibly inspiring collages or sculptures made from found objects. This book will fuel creative thought, initiate discussion about artistic perception, and elicit plain old "wows" from kids.—Joy Fleishhacker, School Library Journal
