From the illustrator of the #1 smash hit The Day The Crayons Quit comes a humorously warm tale of friendship. Now also an animated TV special!
What is a boy to do when a lost penguin shows up at his door? Find out where it comes from, of course, and return it. But the journey to the South Pole is long and difficult in the boy’s rowboat. There are storms to brave and deep, dark nights.To pass the time, the boy tells the penguin stories. Finally, they arrive. Yet instead of being happy, both are sad. That’s when the boy realizes: The penguin hadn’t been lost, it had merely been lonely.
A poignant, funny, and child-friendly story about friendship lost . . . and then found again.

The boy is not the most realistic drawing of a child I have seen, but there is something special about it, some unique presence that sets this book apart from other books.Apr 22 2013 | Read Full Review of Lost and Found
The boy is incredibly sad now as he sets off for home alone and is really missing the penguin until…he spots a small boat in the distance and as it gets nearer he realises it is the penguin looking for him!May 25 2010 | Read Full Review of Lost and Found
One of the very fist books I reviewed on Playing by the book was his award winning Here Come’s Frankie, which is still the book I pick up if I’m in a wonderful mood and feel like dancing, or a terrible mood and need cheering up.May 15 2016 | Read Full Review of Lost and Found
