Product description

From Booklist

PreS-K. On his doorstep, a little boy finds a penguin looking sad and lost, and he tries to help the wordless bird. When the boy discovers that penguins come from the South Pole, he takes his new friend there by rowboat, telling him stories along the way. He helps the penguin ashore and casts off. The penguin sadly watches him float away. Realizing his mistake, the boy returns for the penguin, misses him, finds him, hugs him, and takes him back in his rowboat. A sense of restraint underlies the illustrations, from the spare use of color to the isolation of the individual characters on the page. With clean lines and varied compositions, the watercolor paintings tell the story with a minimum of fuss but no lack of feeling. But unlike characters in the soppier sort of picture books on friendship, the boy and the penguin don't gush; they just quietly enjoy being together. With a succinct narrative text and a series of expressive illustrations, this is a fine choice for reading aloud. Carolyn Phelan

5.0 out of 5 stars A must buy
By Amazon Customer on 15 February 2019
Aah what do I say about the author... such simple words. I didn’t have to explain my 5 year old in my native language. She could understand every word. The pictures are so colourful so thoughtfully articulated. Loved every bit of it.If you don’t have Oliver Jeffer’s books in your child’s library then you are really missing out on something really great.

5.0 out of 5 stars A favourite!
By Anuradha Gupta on 7 October 2020
Lost and Found by Oliver Jeffers was T’s second book by the author. I introduced it only when I was sure she has got used to The Boy and his ways from the previous book (he is a little different you see) She took to this book after a while, only when she understood the story well after repeated readings. It has now become a classic and she asks for it lesser each day, though it has been a hit.

The Boy finds a penguin at his door one day and doesn’t know what to do. He thinks that the penguin is lost, but is he?

WHAT WE LIKED

The Boy’s helpful personality, although peculiar, is full of warmth and welcome, and that is what children should be exposed to.
The concept of loneliness is handled so beautifully, it took me a couple of readings before I could appreciate it myself.
Full paged illustrations. Never fails to grab the attention of a scampering toddler.
Dealing with feelings. Realization, acceptance, and action.
WHAT WE DISLIKED like all of OJ books, this one too has some things that can’t be termed logical from an adult point of view. But then for a child, anything is possible and okay.

Recommended! Published by Harper Collins Children’s Books. Recommended age 2-2.5+ years.
