  1. Augustus the tiger is sad because he has lost his smile. So he sets off to find it, travelling over deserts and mountains, from the top of the trees to the bottom of the ocean. Finally, the brave tiger finds his smile reflected in a puddle and realizes that he only needed to open his eyes to the beauty of the world to find happiness. The bold and beautiful illustrations and charming story by award-winning author-illustrator Catherine Rayner (HARRIS FINDS HIS FEET, IRIS AND ISAAC and ABIGAIL) will enchant parent and child alike. A wonderful bedtime story, the simple words and colourful pictures make this perfect for a parent to read aloud to a toddler. Reviews: “Her bold sense of colour, movement and scale is often breathtaking as we follow the handsome tiger on his quest.” Sunday Herald “…her artwork has a bold, youthful freshness that is very appealing.” The Scotsman
