Lost and Found by Oliver Jeffers

Book Description

See the boy and the penguin dramatically spring to life in this fantastic pop-up edition of the award-winning, best-selling picture book Lost and Found, by the internationally renowned author/illustrator Oliver Jeffers.
There once was a boy…
one day a penguin arrived on his doorstep. The boy decided the penguin must be lost and tried to return him. But no one seemed to be missing a penguin. So the boy decided to take the penguin back to the South Pole himself, and they set out in his row boat on a journey across the oceans. But when they geo there, the boy discovered that maybe home wasn't what the penguin was looking for after all…


Lost and Found pop up edition is simply magical, the story and the illustrations are fantastic, they move round and change to flow beautifully with the story.

One day a boy finds a penguin at his doorstep, he thinks he must be lost, so sets out to find where he comes from. The little boy sets out on his adventure in his row-boat, to the South Pole, to bring the poor little penguin home.

In the end he goes back to find the penguin because he realises he isn't lost, he's just lonely. The whole story is simply darling, everything was so well written and put together, my little one (3) was entranced from start to finish, she kept going back to the book, pulling the tabs, popping up the pages and flipping the tabs up and down.

My daughter loved it so much she is away to bed with it, with a reminder to be very careful with all the little tabs.

Oliver Jeffers has done a wonderful job with Lost and Found, we will go back and read it again and again, a new favourite.

A big thank-you to Harper Collins for the review copy. :)

Put this on your wishlist for your little one today, they will love it.

A five star read!
