The boy and the penguin still enjoy spending all their time together... That is, until the penguin starts to dream of flying, ignoring the boys advice that it is impossible.
Running away, the penguin visits place after place, searching for a chance to get his feet off the ground. But will flying be everything he had hoped? And is the boy missing him, as much as he is missing the boy?
A heart-warming story about friendship, love and reaching for your dreams, from highly-regarded, multi-award-winning author-illustrator Oliver Jeffers.

The sequel to Lost and Found, finds the penguin unhappy once more.... he wants to fly - afterall he has wings.... but he wants to do it by himself. A story of independence, understanding your limitations, and friends being relied upon to "get there" just at the right time. A lovely read..... my daughter always covers her eyes with an "uh-h" as the penguin is shot out of the cannon...... despite knowing all is going to be ok !

A sequel to Lost and Found but stands alone. Penguin desperately wants to fly and finds a very unusual way of doing so. With themes of friendship and independence it is a nice read with a happy ending, my daughter was quite worried for a moment, but it penguin is saved in the end!

A boy is friends with a penguin, and when the penguin decides he wants to fly, the boy does what he can to help him. Unfortunately helping  penguin to fly is not very easy, and the boy runs out of ideas. After spotting a poster, the penguin finds a way, and hurries off in excitement without telling his friend where he is going. This is a fantastic book about friendship, helping one another and caring for someone. Charming and delightful, this is a very popular book with my son

Up and Down is the sequel to Lost and Found and continues the adventures of a boy and his best friend, a penguin. Again, the penguin seems unhappy and the boy is determined to help him. Surely if he has wings he is meant to fly...
