From Shel Silverstein, the celebrated author of The Giving Tree and Where the Sidewalk Ends, comes The Missing Piece Meets the Big O, sure to delight fans of all ages with Silverstein's iconic drawings and humor.

This companion tale to The Missing Piece is an inventive and heartwarming book where the missing piece is in search of its perfect match.

The missing piece sat alone...waiting for someone to come along and take it somewhere. All it wants is to roll along with its perfect match, but some are too small, others too big, and some fit yet don't roll. The missing piece feels sad and lonely until it meets the Big O, and learns that all it ever needed was a little encouragement and determination to fulfill its dreams.

And don't miss Runny Babbit Returns, the new book from Shel Silverstein!
