About the Book

Alfie the circus clown and his dog, Sherlock, make a perfect pair. When Alfie loses something, Sherlock is on the job sniffing it down. But one day, Alfie loses his smile, and it’s not that easy to find.

Alfie and Sherlock make the rounds of the circus hoping to solve the mystery of the lost smile. They visit everyone from the ringmaster, to the tight-rope walker, to the elephant trainer, the strong man, the bareback rider, the juggler, the man on stilts, the lion tamer, the trapeze artists and even the roustabout. Where is Alfie’s smile?

The delightful presentation of multiple new characters teaches children to sequence as they try to solve the mystery of the lost smile. A colorful picture book for children, The Clown That Lost His Smile tells a heartwarming story of friendship as a clown and his dog take a delightful romp through the circus. You’ll never guess where Alfie finds his smile!
