Netta is an ostrich who has a hard time paying attention in school. On the last day of school, a diversion outside causes Netta to miss the entire Math lesson on polygons. Netta becomes so engrossed with the distraction that she falls out of her chair and her glasses break into tiny polygons! Mrs. Heed, the teacher, calls on her to answer a question on polygons, but she cannot read the board, and she is extremely confused because she wasn’t paying attention! In all of the chaos, Mrs. Heed’s question, “Where is the Polygon?” becomes a big misunderstanding and Netta assumes that Polly is gone. Netta spends her summer vacation traveling all over the world in search of Polly. Each place that Netta visits has an abundance of polygons, starting with triangles and ending with decadrons. However, Netta doesn’t realize that polygons are all around her!
