"The Missing Piece..." delivers a message.

Shel Silverstein has a number of cool children's books, including this one adapted to video.

Hi, Sawsee!

My daughter always liked his books. His messages are pretty simple if you think about them for a moment. This one certainly debunks the "you complete me" myth.

Hi Lady! I've only seen two of his books: The print version, of this video, and a similar 'Missing Piece' story.

I like how simple his technique is, but still packs a strong message.
You are right: 'you complete me' gets a bit beat up in this version.
