The Lost Smile is a charming picture book about a young girl Zaytoon learning to deal with feeling sad and blue. On first read, this story reminds me of Jedda Robaard's Little Creatures series. Robaard's series also touches on themes of identity but in this picture book for older readers, author Nadia King explores these issues with more nuance. The story has a gentle message - everyone feels sad sometimes, Zaytoon's ability to overcome her sadness is inside her as she turns to her family and her home for comfort.;The words are made richer by the gorgeous illustrations of artist Nelli Aghekyan. I liked the stylised character designs of Zaytoon's family, especially Dadi who looks like she belongs in a hand drawn animated film. The environment is filled with textural detail which you generally don't find in younger picture books.;This is an ideal picture book to snuggle up to with your kids (or if you're like me, just to enjoy on your own!); Marianna Shek, Writer, Reader, Ideal eater at www.rockonkitty.com.au; “A deeply important story for all children. The Lost Smile provides the perfect platform to explore the reality of emotions, build self-awareness, foster self-care and human connection.”; ―Sonia Bestulic, Author, Founder of Talking Heads Speech Pathology, Podcaster of Chatabout Children with Sonia Bestulic
