Overview

Lost and Found by Oliver Jeffers

From the illustrator of the #1 smash hit The Day The Crayons Quit comes a humorously warm tale of friendship. Now also an animated TV special!

What is a boy to do when a lost penguin shows up at his door? Find out where it comes from, of course, and return it. But the journey to the South Pole is long and difficult in the boy’s rowboat. There are storms to brave and deep, dark nights.To pass the time, the boy tells the penguin stories. Finally, they arrive. Yet instead of being happy, both are sad. That’s when the boy realizes: The penguin hadn’t been lost, it had merely been lonely.

A poignant, funny, and child-friendly story about friendship lost . . . and then found again.

A great book for younger readers, with a lovely story and fantastic illustrations. It was the first book I'd read by this author and I'd highly recommend this (and other books by this author) to anyone looking for a book to share with young children.  The story is about a boy who finds a penguin who is lost. The boy tries to find the home of the penguin to take him there and the story is told with minimal text and beautiful illustrations. A truly delightful book that children will want reading to them and, when they can do so, to read independently over and over again. Brilliant ending, too!

Oliver Jeffers has a knack for delivering a heartfelt story alongside humor and adventure. When a boy finds a penguin on his front step, he decides that it must be lost. He finds the penguin a home, but when he leaves the penguin there, he realizes his mistake. With his unique illustrations and simple yet expressive storytelling ability, Jeffers gives kids a heartwarming tale of friendship they won't forget.

Lost and Found is first year reading in schools these days. After the kids brought it home, it's not just a school favorite anymore. Love the penguin and the sea scenes.

A friend of mine recommended this book for my 2 1/12 year old nephews and they absolutely love it. The illustrations are beautiful and the book tells a great story about friendship. I plan to purchase more books from this author.

I wasn't sure what to expect when I ordered this book but it is great. The story is cute, as are the illustrations. My son loves it and we read it often.

A hit in our first grade class! Beautiful illustrations and a touching story for young and old alike. We used this book during our penguin unit, but it is great for teaching friendship as well. Can't wait for Jeffer's next book due out April 19 - saw a copy from oversees and it is even more delightful! Jeffers' 'The Incredible Book Eating Boy' is especially great for teaching the importance of reading.

We found this at the library and it was such a hit, I have to buy it. Everything about this book is wonderful -- delightful illustrations and a charming story about friendship. A clever twist on the classic 'boy and his dog' theme. We read from the book before bed, and once he's in bed, my son insists on hearing it again. I don't mind because I love the story, plus it's easy to embellish and tell slowly as he drifts off to sleep.
