There are lots of things that makes us feel whole. Little Sunny says finishing a jigsaw, slotting in the final piece, is what gives her the most happiness, though her much-loved Gran wonders if that’s really true. Gran gives her a 1000 piece jigsaw to complete and Sunny fits it together carefully until disaster! The final piece is missing.

Sent out by Gran to the neighbours who borrowed the puzzle, Sunny makes new friends, one after another, and they dance home together as evening comes in. Searching for something is as important as finding it, and Sunny has discovered new forms of completeness and happiness.

Sunny’s journey is beautifully depicted in Beth Suzanna’s bold, bright illustrations, the scene in which the new friends run home under the evening sky is particularly striking, and the story has much to tell us about friends, family and learning new truths about ourselves.
