Balzer and Bray, 2010. Unpaged. Picture book.

Little Sunny is not feeling up to her name as she searches everywhere for something she lost--her smile! It could be anywhere, but Sunny makes sure to exhaust all options, including the fish tank and under her bed. When her smile finally shows up in a way she least expected, she realizes it was never far away.

This is a cute, bright, sunshiny book with fun and cheerful illustrations. The text treatment is really creative, using different font styles to emphasize specific words. I also enjoyed the cute, slightly scribbly illustrations which are the perfect complement to the story. This book is a great for anyone who want to find their missing smile!
