Product Description

Review

‘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

From the Inside Flap

Once there was a boy and one day he found a penguin at his door...he didn't know where it came from or who it belonged to. The penguin looked sad and the boy thought it must be lost. So he decided to help it find its way home, even if that meant rowing all the way to the South Pole...

I came across this story having accidentally caught the animation that was made of this book on TV. So, I bought the book for my son.

The pictures are really enjoyable; they're simple, clear and bright without being gaudy. It's a great little story that is just long enough for short attention spans both young and old.

Recommended. And if you get chance to see the film of the book then I'd definitely recommend that too.

Format: Paperback
Oliver Jeffers simply gets better and better!

This book, like his others is illustrated with his own unique style and makes this book so easy on the eye. The pictures aren't garish, they aren't overly cartoony, they are VERY cute! - They need to be seen to be believed. The picture where the penguin is left behind almost brings a tear to your eye!

The story too is fantastic, a penguin lands on a boys doorstep, it is out of place and the boy wants to take it home. This is essentially a story about friendship, and one your child will certainly want to enjoy again and again - which is good - as you'll want to read it again too!

This book is a cracker, just the opening lines really grab the imagination of any pre-schooler (or parent for that matter)

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

My toddler loves the book and we love reading it - which as every parent knows is important when you are asked to read it for the 88th day in a row! It is in my top 5 children's books for at the moment.

There are not too many words on each page, so personally I would say it is great from age 2 and up.

Format: Board book
The illustrations in this board book are absolutely gorgeous and the story is thoroughly beautiful. I hadn't read any of Oliver Jeffers books to my little ones before receiving a copy of this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review but he will be being added to my 'list'.

The story tells how a little boy finds a penguin and thinks he must be lost because he is sad only to discover after trying to take him home that this is not the case. The story is about friendship and helping others and both my son and baby daughter absolutely love it. The board book is thick and so is perfect for little hands and my daughter loves sitting there looking through the pictures on her own and I can easily confirm this is her favourite book at present.

A beautiful, heartwarming story that is truly magical and draws you in to the story even when reading for the 50th time.

A simple storyline together with fresh illustrations make this one of my daughters favourites (she particularly loves the penguin and the stripey umbrella!) and at this stage (she is now 2) she is enjoying being able to follow a story in her own way, ie: the simplest way she can understand and I believe that it's this very simplicity which makes this picture book a big hit.

It's a short tale of friendship, a heartwarming read without being overly soppy.
Recommended!!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is nicely illustrated, is actually a very heartwarming story but was lacking some elements that my 2 year old daughter likes in other books. Things like when characters talk and weird sounds and noises to make. Also extra imagery in the background that she picks up on in other books is slightly missing throughout the book. This is a lovely book generally and illustrated in a style that seems to be very 'Oliver Jeffers'. Books are subjective and from the look of other reviews this book is highly though of but just doesn't quite hit the spot for my two year old girl.

I bought this for my 2 year old nephew for Christmas. Now, the real reason I bought it is because I LOVE Oliver Jeffers, I joke that if I ever met him I would kidnap him and put him in my cellar. (Don't worry, I don't have a cellar so he's safe from me!)The story is cute,funny gorgeousness and with the added extra of a stuffed penguin who could resist?

Needless to say, my nephew loved the toy and my sister loves the story. Quids in both ways!! Result!
