Kyle’s family have lost their smiles.
Kyle decides to find them.

Using a magnifying glass, a toothbrush and a pair of sunglasses, he begins his search.
Join Kyle as he uncovers giggles, brushes up grins and learns how to make the world smile.

Authored by award winning children’s poet, Joseph Coelho, and illustrated by Sheena Dempsey, The Lost Smile illustrates what we know to be true: children’s smiles are powerful and infectious, inducing a ‘smile back’ effect on those around them.

This storybook forms a part of the Extra® Smile Back ™ Project, which aims to protect children’s smiles and help them to smile confidently back at the day. Extra is donating a minimum of £250,000 through sales of Extra gum to their chosen charity partner, Action for Children. This money will be used to create and run 690 oral healthcare workshops across the UK in partnership with the Oral Health Foundation. Through this project, Extra aims to protect the smiles of more than 10,000 children in the UK.

All profits from the sales of The Lost Smile will be donated to charity, split equally between Action for Children and the Oral Health Foundation.
