An uplifting story about a bear without a smile from the bestselling creator of Percy the Park Keeper. When Albert le Blanc arrives in Mr Jolly's toy shop, the other toys think he's the saddest-looking bear they have ever seen.
They decide to put on a show to cheer him up. Albert tries to tell them he's not sad, he just looks sad, but they are all too busy making preparations...
As a finale, Sally the hippo puts on a lipstick and performs ballet, but she falls on top of Albert and leaves a huge lipstick grin on his face.
Everyone laughs...especially Albert!
