What’s a young crocodile to do when he wakes up and his smile is gone? When Kyle the Crocodile wakes up feeling grumpy, his mother says, "Looks like you lost your smile, Kyle. Why don’t you go out and play? You’ll soon find it again." So Kyle sets out into the jungle, hoping to find his smile. All his friends greet him with the same question, "Where’s your smile, Crocodile?" and do their best to cheer Kyle up.

Claire Freedman’s gentle story is enhanced by fun, bold illustrations by Sean Julian. While young readers are enjoying the antics of Kyle’s jungle friends, they will learn an important lesson about helping others. This story will soon have adults as well as children asking, "Where’s YOUR smile, Crocodile?"
