White, Margaret Wise Brown, and dozens of others — whose genius Nordstrom cultivated under her compassionate and creatively uncompromising wing. Silverstein tells the tale of a lonely little wedge that dreams of finding a big circle into which it can fit, so that together they can roll and go somewhere.
Various shapes come by, but none are quite right. The missing piece tries to make itself more attractive, flashier — but that scares away the shy ones and leaves it ever lonelier. And just like in any relationship where one partner grows and the other remains static, things end in disappointment — and then they just end. At last, a shape comes by that looks completely different — it has no piece missing at all — and introduces itself as the Big O.
This notion is utterly revelatory for the missing piece, doubly so when the Big O asks if it has ever tried. But corners, the Big O assures it, can wear off — another elegant metaphor for the self-refinement necessary in our personal growth.
