LoveReading View on Lost and Found

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 Synopsis

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.
