The Lovereading4Kids comment
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. ~ Julia Eccleshare
Lost and Found by Oliver Jeffers
Set sail on a wonderful adventure in this toddler-friendly board book from award-winning, bestselling picture book creator, Oliver Jeffers! There once was a boy and one day he found a penguin at his door...The boy decides the penguin must be lost and tries to return him. But no one seems to be missing a penguin. So the boy 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...
'An uplifting story...pictures of such spare beauty...suffused with a dreamlike quality.'
'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.'
'My picture book of the year, a joyful exploration of the power of friendship.'
Praise for 'How to Catch a Star':
The best recent picture book by light years... stylishly spellbinding.' Telegraph
