Lost and Found is a well-written story about a little boy on a quest to return a lost penguin. This is a poignant, funny story about friendship lost and then found again. The idea of a penguin turning up at the front door instantly engages children and the subtle humor throughout the story maintains this engagement. The book has several child-friendly messages about friendship, about knowing someone’s origins, and about helping those in need. Oliver Jeffers has created a timeless classic with Lost and Found and children of all ages will enjoy the story.
