Augustus the tiger is sad because he has lost his smile. So he sets off to find it, travelling over deserts and mountains, from the top of the trees to the bottom of the ocean. Finally, the brave tiger finds his smile reflected in a puddle and realizes that he only needed to open his eyes to the beauty of the world to find happiness.
