The Missing Piece

Written by Shel Silverstein • Illustrated by Shel Silverstein

Reviewed by Trevor M. (age 9)

"It" was missing a piece and "It" was not happy. Then "It" went looking for his missing piece, becuase "It" wanted to find the missing piece. "It" did not roll very fast. "It" could stop to smell a flower. "It" could race a bug. In the end, "It" does not find the missing piece.

My favorite part of the story is when "It" doesn't have the piece, because he is slow. My favorite character is "It" because "It" can't find "Its" missing piece. I can relate to "It" because sometimes I can't find things.

The book has pictures that help to tell the story. I think others should read this book because it is very good.
