Lost and Found by Oliver Jeffers
“Once there was a boy who found a penguin at his door.” The boy sets out to help the sad-looking bird find its way home. After discovering penguins are from Antarctica, they set sail on a rowboat. Their long journey is filled with waves, storms and the telling of stories. When they finally arrive, the boy drops the penguin on the ice and starts his journey home. “It felt strange to be on his own… and the more he thought … the more he realised he was making a big mistake.
