The Lovereading4Kids comment
A touching story of how two friends feel when they separate and try to manage without each other. Prize-winning illustrator Oliver Jeffers specialises in spare illustrations which are warm hearted but also capture the deep sadness of being alone in the world. Here a little boy and a penguin are the firmest of friends who are never happier than when they are playing their favourite game. Until, one day, Penguin feels he must try to fly. Penguin sets off on his personal quest but without his best friend at his side nothing seems to go right. How the two friends find each other in the nick of time is a beautifully told in words and pictures.

In this engaging sequel to the picture book, Lost and Found, by internationally bestselling author/illustrator Oliver Jeffers, we re-visit the boy and the penguin after their trip to the South Pole...
Now available in this toddler friendly board format, so the youngest generation can enjoy this unforgettable story too!
The boy and the penguin still enjoy spending all their time together...That is, until the penguin starts to dream of flying, ignoring the boys advice that it is impossible. Running away, the penguin visits place after place, searching for a chance to get his feet off the ground. But will flying be everything he had hoped? And is the boy missing him, as much as he is missing the boy? A heart-warming story about friendship, love and reaching for your dreams, from highly-regarded, multi-award-winning author-illustrator Oliver Jeffers.
