'Runaway Smile' is an enchanting story, capturing the innocence of a young boy's quest to find his missing moniker.
The story appears to be quite a simple tale of the boy's adventure, but there is embellishment with delightful touches of a vivid imagination everywhere you look. For example: rather than just a bear passing by, it is a bear riding a unicycle. I did also like the understatement where the simple description of a fob watch spoke volumes about the mother.
The illustrations by talented Dimitris Fousekis foster an air of whimsy and are a welcome enhancement to the story.
My only regret would be that it ended so soon, and I will definitely by exploring more of Nicholas Rossis' repertoire.
