bench Monday: Lost and Found

Lost and Found is the second title by artist and writer Oliver Jeffers. My son and I adore it and all of Jeffers' titles. They're beautifully written and illustrated, with such sweet tales. Lost and Found is about a boy who finds a penguin and tries to help him find his way home, even if it means rowing all the way to the South Pole...This is our interpretation of the story. If you have young kids and you haven't entered the beautiful, timeless world of Oliver Jeffers, now is the time to make that discovery.


Oliver Jeffers


Once there was a boy and one day he found a penguin at his door.


The boy didn’t know where it had come from but it began to follow him everywhere.


The penguin looked sad and the boy thought it must be lost.
