We usually put up our Muffin Tin Monday posts over at Mother Is Not Concerned, but since we're including a book review, it'll be here this week. If you want the clever titles, you'll have to go to that other blog. Here's our Little Smudge shape-themed muffin tin:

* Not actually in the book.
Here are the boys enjoying it (I tried to get them to act out the book, but they mostly just wanted to eat):
Book review by Tintin, age 7
Lionel Le Neouanic
Little Smudge is about a smudge and rascal shapes. The rascals make fun of Little Smudge because he doesn't look like a real shape. I like it because it's a good book and it's about friendship. My favorite part is when Little Smudge taught the shapes how to turn into different shapes and then they were friends. I would recommend this book to people who like friendship books.
And some shape-transforming artwork to go along with it, by Tintin and Johnny Boo:
(black Little Smudge, orange Little Diamond, blue Little Circle, red Little Square, green Little Triangle)
Here's Johnny Boo after he opened up his Little Smudge painting:
And here he is making his Little Circle painting:
