Augustus and his Smile (Russian-English)
Winner of the Best New Illustrator Award in the BOOKTRUST EARLY YEARS AWARDS 2006
Shortlisted for the CILIP KATE GREENAWAY MEDAL 2007
by Catherine Ryner.
Augustus, a Siberian tiger, was sad. He had lost his smile. So he set off to find it. He climbed to the tops of the tallest trees. He scaled the crests of the highest mountains. He swam to the bottom of the deepest oceans. He pranced through tht deserts... And he raced as raindwrops bounced and flew. When he splashed through the puddles, he saw his own smile under his nose. And he realized that his smile would be there, whenever he is happy. In this remarkable picture book the simple happiness is celebrated when we open our eyes to it. In Russian and English in parallel on each page. A remarkable book which celebrates the beauty of the world.
“…a gorgeously illustrated tale about a tiger that sets off in search of his lost smile – it’s prefect for keen little listeners.” Practical Parenting
“…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.” – The Independent
Ages 4-8; 32 Pages; Paperback
