Oliver Jeffers delivers another "again" book

I love the penguin! The illustrations are very well done and colorful. Oliver Jeffers produces yet another "Again" book that my 3 year old enjoys.

Bello cuento sobre la amistad

Este es un cuento muy lindo con bellos dibujos, acerca de la amistad. Oliver Jeffers es un gran autor de cuentos para niños. Este es de un niño que encuentra un pinguino y decide llevarlo a su hogar. En el camino se vuelven grandes amigos, y al dejarlo se da cuenta de que lo extraña. Se encuentra al pinguino y se entera de que en realidad el pinguino no queria volver a casa, lo que quería era un amigo.

Beautiful and Magical Book!

Lost and Found will hopefully win many awards for this touching adventure story with themes of Love and Friendship at its core. A boy befriends a penguin and tries to return him to his home at the South Pole. They bond and enjoy each others' companionship. They never give up on each other, even when they become separated. The boy shows surprising maturity when he realizes he made a mistake leaving the penguin and then goes back to find him. What a great lesson to learn, that it's OK to make a mistake, acknowledge it, then take action to amend it! This story illustrates that it's the Journey, the trip along the way, not necessarily just the destination that gives life meaning and value. Furthermore, the values of friendship, companionship, and sharing come through strongly in this story. This book also taps into classic, timeless themes of finding one's way back home, almost like a kid's version of The Odyssey. The watercolors of the book are spectacular, deep and rich. The drawings have an interesting scale that make the two travelers seem quite heroic. The final reunitement embrace of boy and penguin will melt your heart. What a touching portrait! I challenge the public to find another embrace that is so simple, so pure, so elegant, so Loving. This book is a Treasure!

A Love Story of Friendship

I picked up this book to help my 5yr old daughter read, and fell in love with the book. The story is so sweet. The pictures humorous and touching. It's a well crafted and lovely book. And I recommend it for any adult who loves a good short story.

I am in love with this penguin!

Oliver Jeffer's second book has become one of my favorite picture books ever. I recommend this for children and adults. This is a story of a boy and the penguin he finds on his doorstep. Assuming he is lost, the boy attempts to return him to the South Pole. After a long and dangerous adventure, the boy realizes that the penguin was not lost-- he was lonely and looking for a friend. Just flip to end of this book and look at the two of them hugging. Its the cutest dang 'ol thing ever.
