Augustus the tiger was sad. He had lost his smile. So he did a HUGE tigery stretch, and set off to find it. He passes shiny insects, birds, mountains, fish and gets caught up in a rainstorm...Awards:

- Shortlisted for the CILIP KATE GREENAWAY MEDAL 2007
From The Critics:
"...a gorgeously illustrated tale about a tiger that sets off in search of his lost smile - it-???+-?¼s prefect for keen little listeners."
"...the real star of this impressive debut is the illustration. Page for page, this has a better feeling for tigerishness of a tiger - how it swims and climbs and makes a HUGE tigery stretch than a whole chapter of natural history books. This will make children care."
