“In this triple threat (at least as far as concept books go), Cincinnati-based author/artist Jones makes a strong debut as she explores seven colors, shapes, and animals. On the opening spread, the words 'brown circle hedgehog' appear within a white circle at left; at right, an adorable cartoon version of the animal sleeps contentedly on its back, its body the shape of a circle. Elsewhere, a 'red square owl' stares off-page, as though trying to remember something, and the jointed legs of a 'yellow star frog' give the animal a five-pointed outline. Jones’s clever portraits ooze personality, and will appeal to children and book-buying adults alike.” - Publishers Weekly (starred review)
