Augustus and his Smile

Review

Augustus is a tiger, who though large and fearless, is sad, because he has lost his smile. He goes on a journey to find it, but despite looking everywhere, he fails.

Only when it begins to rain and a puddle forms does he find his smile staring back from his reflection, and realises that he will always have his smile, whenever he is happy.

A simple story, well told, but it is the adventurous artwork that makes this book stand out. The image of Augustus stretches across pages magnificently and children will love accompanying him on his journey through jungle, over mountains and into the sea.
