Amos is a mouse with oceangoing dreams, and Boris is a whale who is kind enough to save his life at sea: the pair become devoted friends with nothing at all in common, except good hearts and a willingness to help their fellow mammal. Amos wants so much to show his gratitude to his new friend, but it will not be until many years later, long after Boris has gone back to a life of whaling about and Amos has gone back to his life of mousing around, when the tiny mouse can find a way to rescue the great whale. The tender yet comical tale of this friendship is recorded with charm and wit, as Caldecott-medalist William Steig brings two winning heroes to life.

People differ in terms of how morally deserving they are. And it is a good thing if people get what they deserve. Accordingly, it is important to work out an adequate theory of moral desert. But while certain aspects of such a theory have been frequently discussed in the philosophical literature, many others have been surprisingly neglected. For example, if it is indeed true that it is morally good for people to get what they deserve, does it always do the same amount of good when someone gets what they deserve? Or does it matter how deserving the person is? If we cannot give someone exactly what they deserve, is it better to give too much-or better to give too little? Does being twice as virtuous make you twice as deserving? And how are we to take into account the thought that what you deserve depends in part on how others are doing? The Geometry of Desert explores a number of these less familiar questions, using graphs to illustrate the various possible answers. The result is a more careful investigation into the nature of moral desert than has ever previously been offered, one that reveals desert to have a hidden complexity that most of us have failed to recognize.
