The Girls with the Lost Smile by Miranda Hart - Event Pack


FIND YOUR SMILE using this fun The Girl with the Lost Smile event pack!

The Girl with the Lost Smile

Chloe Long has lost her smile. She’s looked everywhere for it. (Under her pillow. Under her bed. Under her nose. Obviously.)

She’s tried everything to bring it back. (Her favourite cake. Her favourite gran. Her favourite joke. Obviously.) But nothing seems to be working!

Until one night, something utterly magical happens – and Chloe finds herself on an adventure that is out of this world …

How to get involved

This summer holiday, Hachette Children’s Group are inviting libraries to run their own FIND YOUR SMILE treasure hunts, feel-good fun for kids and all the family.

The treasure hunt will consist of a journey through sections of the library as participants search for their smile.

Included in the digital pack is:

• Instructions
• Signage for each challenge, to be displayed in various parts of the library
• Poster templates

We would love to see how you use the provided materials this summer, so please share any photos you have online using #GirlWithTheLostSmile and by tagging @HachetteKids and @readingagency. It would also be appreciated if you could email with any feedback about how you use the materials. Miranda would also love to see the families enjoying the activity so please tag her using @mermhart.


Keeping your reading group active while social distancing

Are you wondering how your reading group can continue to meet, even while you’re social distancing? With many people at home with family, flatmates or on their own, we know that books are so important to provide comfort, solace and escapism. Staying socially connected, and keeping your regular reading group meetings in your diary, is going to be very important in keeping up morale and supporting everyone’s mental health as we adjust to a new way of living.

Hive and The Reading Agency

The Reading Agency loves books, in every form, and we know you do too. We love it when people borrow books in every format from their brilliant local libraries. We love it when reading groups get exclusive free proofs from our publisher partners. We love it when readers pick up a pre-loved book from a second-hand bookshop for a song. And we also love it when you buy yourself or someone else a brand new book from a high street bookshop. We also know that buying online is quick and convenient...
