Little Miss Sunshine in the books

There was a king who lived in a castle in Miseryland. Little Miss Sunshine was coming home from holiday. She saw a sign saying "This way to Miseryland.", so she decided to go to Miseryland. She saw a guard at the bridge door. she gave the guard a big smile, then the guard took her to see the king of Miseryland and she had an idea. So she and the king went back to her car. Finally she made a new picket sign saying "Laughterland" and she boomed an enormous laugh then the king laughed too. Miss Sunshine then goes home and meets Mr. Happy, who was on his evening stroll. She tells him that she just got back from Miseryland. Mr. Happy didn't know there was such a place! But Little Miss Sunshine reassures him that there isn't a place like that anymore!

Little Miss Sunshine is one of the happiest people in the world, besides Mr. Happy, Mr. Cheerful, and Little Miss Giggles.
