In the spirit of All Are Welcome, this gentle picture book about being yourself and inspiring change in others follows sweet, plucky Linus who doesn’t fit into the rigid confines of his straitlaced world—and learns that that’s okay.

Linus is trying his very best to stay in line, but everyone in Linneopolis is bent out of shape because he isn’t square enough for them. When he’s sent to an overnight camp to straighten out and build some character, Linus decides he’s had enough. He’s going to run away and find shapes that aren’t so set in their ways.

But what happens when he starts to miss home? Can he convince the population of Linneopolis to open up instead of shutting down? Or are they too boxed in to hear him out?
