Answers : Me and my child have became Oliver Jeffers fan b'cuz of this book. A simple story talks about love, care, compassion, friendship. Sadness, lonelyness, confusion all get replaced from the lives of the boy and the penguin at the end of book.
The pictures of the books are so expressive.
My little one holds his penguin soft toy in his arm every time while we read the book. I highly recommend this book to parents.
Illustrations are simple and beautiful. One or two lines per page. Easy for 2.5 ye old to concentrate on a single scene. The words used are perfect as they are what she has been learning nowadays. So helps reinforce her learning.
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.
Though paperback it has outer cover which is little thick sheet
Am sure everybody knows about this cute story of frienship
Lovely pictures but since we saw the lost and found film first and got the book later it was not on the favorite list as the movie was beautifully recreated.
Among the authors' books next to Here we are this is the second best .

He thinks someone might be missing a penguin so he checks the lost and found office. No one was missing a penguin so they got out the boy's boat and set off for sea. The boy told the penguin stories. They travelled through good weather and bad weather. Soon they arrived at the South Pole.
Will they be happy there?
I would recommend this book to Year 6 because they'll probably enjoy it. I enjoyed reading this book which is why I gave it 5 stars. My favourite bit was when the penguin and the boy became great friends. I bet you'll really enjoy it.
