From Shel Silverstein, the celebrated author of the Giving Tree and Where The Sidewalk Ends, comes The Missing Piece Meets the Big O, a charming fable that gently probes the nature of individuality and self-fulfillment.

"The missing piece sat alone
waiting for someone
to come along
and take it somewhere..."

The different ones it encounters – and what it discovers in its helplessness – are portrayed with simplicity and compassion in the words and drawings of Shel Silverstein.
