Illustrated by Oliver Jeffers

"Once there was a boy who found a penguin at his door." The penguin begins to follow the boy everywhere so the boy decide to help the penguin find its way home. He asked around but nobody seemed to know the penguin or where he had come from. He reads in a book that penguins come from the South Pole and he being his journey with the penguin to take him back home. During the long journey, the boy tells stories to keep the penguin entertained. When they finally arrived at the South Pole, they say their goodbyes and the penguin stays behind looking as sad as ever. As the boy sails away he realizes he's made a mistake and comes back looking for his friend.
Lost and Found is an endearing story about friendship. The penguin is lost and lonely. Once he finds the boy, they both find friendship and love. The watercolor illustrations are tender and beautiful. This a really lovely tale.
