The story is about a pacman-like creature that sets out to find its missing piece. The adventure starts out being fun, as it rolls around singing....
Oh, I'm lookin' for my missin' piece
I'm lookin' for my missin' piece
Hi-dee-ho, here I go
Lookin' for my missin' piece.
A New York Time's Book Review had this to say about the book, "This fable can also be interpreted to mean that no one should try to find all the answers, no one should hope to fill all the holes in themselves, achieve total transcendental harmony or psychic order, because a person without a search, loose ends, internal conflicts and external goals becomes too smooth to enjoy or know what's going on. Too much satisfaction blocks exchange with the outside."
