Augustus and His Smile by Catherine Rayner

Augustus the tiger was sad. He couldn't find his smile. So he set out to look for it. He searched high and low: in the mountains, ocean, and desert. He just knew it had to be hiding somewhere.

A simple yet beautiful story about finding something that was there all along. Catherine Rayner's music, cadence, and pacing are simply brilliant. Who knew a gentle tiger could teach us so much about happiness and being present in the moment. A book written for kids but certainly one adults can learn from too. 

I'd love to write more but sometimes the best book reviews are the shortest. I'm hoping this is one of them.
