A penguin and a boy hugging. Who needs words?
Well, Lost and Found by Oliver Jeffers, does benefit from a few. Without them, how would you know that a penguin shows up on a boy’s doorstep? That the boy himself has to take him back to the South Pole Or, that when the boy does return the penguin (by rowing across oceans), the penguin is still sad? Homesickness wasn’t the problem. It was loneliness. Jeffers writes with his tongue-in-cheek and gives the book a special flavor. Yummy!
