Have you ever seen something that can change three times? The main idea of this book is that the circle tries to find his missing piece. My favorite part was when the circle teleported because when a butterfly touched it, the circle went to a different place. When the circle looked for its missing piece, it broke one ______. You'll have to read the story to find out what it broke.

I like this book because the circle can teleport which I think is funny because a butterfly made him do it. I thought the illustrations were poor because they had no colors. I think it would be cool if I could teleport.

I recommend this book because it is hilarious. I think kids who like shapes would like this book because there are lots of shapes in the story.
