The Wing Wing Brothers Geometry Palooza!

Ethan Long. Holiday House, $15.95 (32p) ISBN 978-0-8234-2951-6
The ever-daring Wing Wing Brothers return for a third outing, ready to reveal three “amazing feats” of geometry. The birds first demonstrate relative positions by launching themselves “in front of,” “above,” “behind,” “beside,” and finally “through” a Ring of Fire. Next, Walter’s magic wand shows how shapes can create more complex shapes (“One square plus two triangles of equal size can make... a parallelogram!”), and Wendell saws a wooden box (and Walter) into four quarters in the final trick. Long’s comics-style panels bring clarity and comedy to each episode, and his irreverent closing gag will leave readers cackling—it turns out that taking a bow right after being sawn into four pieces isn’t a great idea. Ages 4–6. Agent: Paul Rodeen, Rodeen Literary Management. (Jan.)
