I especially liked the wild sea picture with the huge wave and the lightning, and the whimsical one when first seeing the South Pole. I got a kick out of the author bio on the inside back cover, complete with the author as a little boy, making a funny face. The paragraph about how this story came to be is amusing and told in a way that had me smiling. View 2 comments. I just can't resist a book with a penguin in it.
And thank goodness I didn't resist this one. It is super. It is a simple story about a boy and a penguin but the feelings it arouses are many; there is pathos aplenty, a fear of being alone, wonderment, disappointment, determination and above all happiness and friendship.
The boy in the story, unnamed, finds a penguin on his doorstep and wonders where he comes from. The penguin, meanwhile, stands there looking all very sad.
The boy thinks the pengui I just can't resist a book with a penguin in it. The boy thinks the penguin must be lost so he visits the Lost and Found Office but meets with no joy. He even tries asking the birds if they know anything about the penguin, but, perhaps not surprisingly, they ignore his question. The boy also asks his pet toy duck when he gets in the bath that night but the duck, too, doesn't respond and simply floats away.
When he goest to bed the boy frets because he wants to help the penguin but he doesn't know how to do so. The next morning he is determined and he finds out that penguins are from the South Pole. He wonders how to get there and return the penguin to his surroundings. In an effort to do so he goes down to the harbour and asks a big ship to take them to the South Pole but the ship is about to depart and does not hear the boy over the sound of the ship's horn.
So the boy decides that he and the penguin will row to the South Pole. He takes his rowing boat out of the cupboard, tests it for size and strength and packs everything that the pair will need for the journey. Then together they push the rowing boat out to sea and one of the most gorgeous and touching illustrations in the book is of the two of them doing so. They row south and to keep the penguin's spirits up the boy tells stories all the time. They battle on through good and bad weather and eventually reach the South Pole where there is a sign 'Welcome to the South Pole'!
The boy is delighted but the penguin, who had been happy throughout the journey suddenly becomes sad again as the boy helps him out of the boat. Once the penguin is on terra firma, complete with the boy's umbrella, the boy rows away but he looks back and notices that the penguin looks sadder than ever. He feels strange to be on his own and the more he thinks about it the more he realises that he is making a big mistake and that the penguin is not lost, he is simply lonely. The boy makes a decision and turns round and rows back towards the South Pole but when he gets there the penguin is nowhere in sight, even as he looks around the landscape with his telescope.
Eventually he has to give up and starts rowing home, sad but unable to communicate his feelings to anyone for there is only the sound of the wind and the waves. Then suddenly he espies something in the distance and as he gets closer he realises that it is the penguin who is rowing away in his umbrella! He is so thrilled that when he reaches the penguin the pair embrace and realise that they are friends forever. A great little story, beautifully illustrated.

Determining that his penguin visitor is lost, the boy sets out to return him to his home in the South Pole. After a long voyage, one featuring plenty of stories and good fellowship, the two arrive at their destination. But although he has reached his goal, the boy isn't happy Like its predecessor, How to Catch a Star , Lo "Once there was a boy who found a penguin at his door Like its predecessor, How to Catch a Star , Lost and Found features an engaging young protagonist who longs for something - in that earlier book, it was a star, here it is to make his penguin friend happy - and finds it in an unexpected way.
Like Shaun Tan's marvelous The Lost Thing , Jeffers' Lost and Found was made into a short animated film in , and after reading the picture-book, I'd definitely like to track down and watch the movie. This is one I'd recommend to those looking for children's stories about friendship - the loneliness its absence creates, and the unexpected ways one finds and creates it - as well as to anyone who read and enjoyed the earlier story about this boy-character and his life.
