Oliver Jeffers has been selected as one of The Big Picture campaign's Best New Illustrators in 2008. Winner of the Blue Peter Book Awards - Best Illustrated book to read aloud.
Celebrating the value of friendship, this is an exquisitely illustrated picture book with a simple story line. Opening his door and finding a penguin on it, the little boy takes pity on the sad looking creature who he immediately assumes is lost. Together they set out on an adventure across icy-blue wastes to find the penguin’s real home. The cool of the landscape makes a perfect backdrop to the warmth of the friendship between the pair.
Lost and Found by Oliver Jeffers
Once there was a boy and one day a penguin arrives on his doorstep. He decides to take the penguin home himself, and they set out in his row boat on a journey to the South Pole. But when they get there, the boy discovers that maybe home wasn't what the penguin was looking for after all! This book offers a tale of friendship and loneliness.
'Oliver Jeffers makes impressive use of space in this affecting story of friendship...illustrations capture feelings of loss and loneliness through the most delicate nuances of facial expression...and body language.'
'One of the most perfect stories in recent years featuring... one of the best conclusions in all of children's fiction. I can't wait until my nephew is old enough to read this with me, but until then, I'm more than happy to read it to myself. A minor masterpiece and one which will remain with you forever.'
'Jeffers has a unique writing and illustrative style. It's a wonderful picture book.'
'My picture book of the year, a joyful exploration of the power of friendship.'
