A Trapezoid is NOT a Dinosaur!
Suzanne's author-illustrator debut picture book
All the shapes want a part in Triangle's play, Shapes in Space. Square has all the right angles, Circle is on a roll, and Star shines the brightest. Trapezoid just doesn't fit in. Isn't that some kind of dinosaur? Determined to get a part, Trapezoid acts like all the other shapes, but must discover a way to use his own unique strengths to help make the show a blast.

“If you’ve a kid that was a fan of Kelly Bingham’s Z Is for Moose, this is sort of its shapey equivalent. . .”
Praise for Trapezoid
“On its surface, this is a simple story about accepting others for their differences. But it’s greatest potential is for a STEAM-powered storytime, as each shape describes how they are different. . . VERDICT This title is ideal for curricular support. A solid addition for most collections.”
—School Library Journal
“An effective bridge from simple shape identification to more specific geometric facts.”
