I Love It When You Smile

by Sam McBratney Illustrated by Charles Fuge

When Little Roo wakes up, he just feels grumpy. His mother tries everything she can to make him feel better, but nothing she does makes any difference. So how will a deep, wide, and muddy-at-the-bottom hole make Little Roo smile?

From the bestselling author of Guess How Much I Love You comes a story that will guarantee a smile and a laugh from even the grumpiest reader.
