A little girl's urban neighborhood becomes a discovery ground for all things round, square, and rectangular. Most items are Asian in origin, others universal: round rice bowls and a found pebble, square dim sum and the boxes that the pizzas come in. A short glossary adds cultural significance to the objects featured in the book.
