There once was a boy... and one day a penguin arrives on his doorstep. The boy decides the penguin must be lost and tries to return him. But no one seems to be missing a penguin. So the boy decides to take the penguin home himself, and they set out in his row boat on a journey to the South Pole. But when they get there, the boy discovers that maybe home wasn′t what the penguin was looking for after all...

        Comments about Lost and Found:

        I have used this book in the classroom with Stage 1 (6-8 year olds) to explore themes of friendship, responsibility, loneliness and isolation. Using Focus on Reading strategies such as making connections, inferring and visualising, it is also a great springboard for other integrated writing activities. Highly recommeded.

        'An uplifting story...pictures of such spare beauty...suffused with a dreamlike quality.' Independent Online 'Oliver Jeffers makes impressive use of space in this affecting story of friendship...illustrations capture feelings of loss and loneliness through the most delicate nuances of facial expression...and body language.' Julia Eccleshare, The Guardian 'One of the most perfect stories in recent years featuring... one of the best conclusions in all of children's fiction. I can't wait until my nephew is old enough to read this with me, but until then, I'm more than happy to read it to myself. A minor masterpiece and one which will remain with you forever.' Bury Free Press 'Jeffers has a unique writing and illustrative style. It's a wonderful picture book.' Publishing News 'My picture book of the year, a joyful exploration of the power of friendship.' Irish Independent

        Oliver Jeffers

        Born in Western Australia, raised in Belfast, Northern Ireland and now currently residing in Brooklyn, New York.

        Oliver Jeffers makes art.

        From figurative painting and installation to illustration and picture-book making, his work has been exhibited in New York, Dublin, London, Sydney, Washington DC, Belfast and elsewhere.

        A co-founder of the art collective OAR, their exhibitions include 9 days in Belfast, book and the award winning BUILDING. Illustration clients include Orange UK, Lavazza, Sony PSP, RCA Records, Starbucks, Candy, the Vacuum and Her Royal Majesty the Queen of England. HarperCollins UK and Penguin USA publish his picture books, including the award-winning Lost and Found and The Incredible Book Eating Boy.

        There has always been a strong undercurrent of narrative behind Jeffers's work, but his current interest in making art lies in the anomaly between logical and emotional thinking.

        While striving to find a harmonious balance between form and content, Jeffers is curious about the opposing means by which the world he lives in can be assessed. To explore this he has been drawing parallels between the arts and sciences, as in his recent solo show, Additional Information (exhibited December 2006, in Hill St Belfast), in which figurative oil paintings were over laid with mathematical equations.
