Watch this space folks - sensational creative duo Naomi and James Jones have entered the kid's lit scene and their debut picture book is an absolute triumph!
Inspired by their son's struggles with fitting in, The Perfect Fit is a bubbly, thoughtful tale about individuality and inclusion, uniquely explored through the charming world of shapes and colours.
Full of heart and rooted in kindness and understanding, triangle and her shape squad are perfectly brought to life through Naomi's quirky characteristic charm and James's bold and boisterous illustrations - think, a dose of Jon Klassen's Shape trilogy and a dab of Morag Hood's Colin and Lee, Carrot and Pea!
"And even though Triangle wasn't exactly the same as everyone else, it was still a perfect fit"
Delightfully playful, endlessly entertaining, and oh so satisfying, little readers will delight in triangle's quest to find her perfect place in the world. Coupled with all the fun that's to be had with the shape and colour recognition, The Perfect Fit is destined to become a firm family favourite. It's positively perfect in every way.
