On a hot summer day in Arkansas in 1953, ten-year-old Annie Marcus
is intent on nothing else but scraping a tick off her skin when she
receives the scare of her life. Suddenly, she is looking into the
eyes of Be More Happy, an old hermit that lives deep in the woods.
Frightening stories have circulated among Annie's ten friends
for a long time about the hermit with long white hair who
supposedly has no tongue, but when Annie notices his eyes are like
two big, black, sad holes in his head, she ignores the mystery
surrounding the old man and strikes up a conversation. As time goes
on and Be More Happy begins offering gentle advice and a strong
shoulder to cry on, Annie realizes that despite opposition from
other children, she needs to bring Be More Happy into their circle
As the children all learn to accept others, face the tragedy of
death, and understand the importance of fulfilling dreams, Be More
Happy teaches them all a lifelong lesson they will never
