Published by HarperCollins

The poor little circle is missing a piece. What is to be done? Off on a journey the circle goes, in search of the piece it’s missing. With many mishaps along the way, pieces are found that don’t quite fit – but come close! – and plenty of special consideration is given to what it means to be missing a piece, the story of this circle will touch everyone who reads the tale. Similar to many famous fables, the story deals with the nature of a quest, the fulfillment of the quest, and the unexpected lessons that are learned along the way.

  1. I absolutely love this book. I read it to my grade 2 class recently and we spoke in length about what it meant. The idea of being happy with yourself and not seeking fulfillment in people or things is a huge concept for children. But one that is worth discussing. Thanks for highlighting it.


  2. Love this book … it succeeds on so many levels. You can read it to your 3 year old, your 8 year old and even enjoy it as an adult. This is Shel at his best. Thanks for sharing.
