Book Sharing Monday:Lost and Found

This week's book is Lost and Found by Oliver Jeffers.

Once there was a boy and one day, a penguin arrives on his door step. The boy thinks 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!

Lost and Found is a heart-warming  tale of friendship and adventure.The illustrations are simple yet beautiful. It is one of those books we never tire of reading. You can check out the illustrations here.
 (We also like How to Catch a Star by Oliver Jeffers. You can read about it here.)
