Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Eula is the only square cat in town. Everything that normal cats do is hard for her -- she can't get her square paw into mouseholes, she can't wear her favorite circle skirt, and all of her friends are round! Eula is sad until her two best friends show her just how well a square cat can fit into this round world.

Horn Book Review

Eula, a square cat, wants to be round. Her friends try to help by giving her hoop earrings and a beehive hat. When those don't work, they don square boxes to demonstrate Eula's assets ("square cats are easy to stack"). The text tries too hard to be quirky and offbeat, but Schoonmaker's geometric illustrations help soft-pedal the celebrate-your-individuality message. (c) Copyright 2011.
