The Lovereading4Kids comment
Shortlisted for the 2012 Kate Greenaway Medal.
The Judges said: A dramatically beautiful picture book full of movement. Layers of colour and texture capture the movement of water, and of light, and of Peter and Paul themselves. A thrilling visual adventure for children, with a tender message.
Simplicity is the key to this delightful picture book capturing the sense of loss when two playful puffins get separated by a stormy sea. Peter and Paul are the best of friends; they do everything together. When they are swept apart, Peter can find no trace of Paul. Luckily, a passing whale helps him with the search but Peter’s description is a bit vague! How can the two Puffins be reunited?
Puffin Peter by Petr Horacek
Delightful and witty, this is a simple story of mistaken identity! Peter and Paul are the best of friends, but when Peter gets lost in a terrible storm he can't find Paul anywhere. With the help of a big blue whale Puffin Peter set off to find him. They find all kinds of birds that match Peter's description but none of them are quite like Paul. This title features original artwork from award-winner Petr Horacek uses stunning techniques including collage..
'Tender words and gorgeous illustrations.' - Angels & Urchins
'This is a heart-warming story of loss and friendship accompanied by Petr Horacek's distinctively striking illustrations. Vibrant and exciting, they will keep a young reader engaged with this inspiring story.' Carousel
