5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing
This animation is incredible. My little boy adores it and tells anyone and everyone about it. I am a massive fan of Oliver Jeffers' books, from one of which this animation is based upon, and therefore I was apprehensive on my first viewing. My concerns melted away within seconds, the animation is breathtaking, and the narration and music complement it beautifully. If you...

3.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, but be warned... it's short
I picked up this title to try to keep the kids quiet for an hour while I got some work done. The box states that running time is approx 50 mins. However, be warned that the running time of the actual feature is 24 minutes 2 seconds! My 3 year old isn't very interested in 'the making of' which must be included in the running time stated - a bit odd really...

A simple story well told and beautifully made that captures the heart of even an old cynic. We stumbled on this over Christmas and were captivated by it. Something to watch time and time again to lift your spirits however young or old you are.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Animation For Young Children, 24 Dec 2008

This review is from: Lost and Found [DVD] (DVD)
Having just seen this, being an animation fan - I felt I had to write about it. It's amazing computerised animation is wonderful, and the storyline is sentimental.

A young boy opens his door to find a penguin at his doorstep. He's not really happy about him being there, so he desperately looks to have him taken away. He tried to put him on a boat, but the ship has sailed away. The only way he can is by going it alone, just him, the penguin, a rowing boat and some food.

This is a delightful tale of a young boy's journey to the North Pole to take a penguin back, with some very sentimental moments, and shows youngsters how a friendship can develop unexpectedly. The animation is smooth and an absolute delight - with beautiful colours swishing on and off screen, with beautiful narrative perfect for young children (I would say 4-8 year olds will love this). It's also good fun for all the family, and has a great underlying message.

Definitely worth a rent - and hopefully will have fun and exciting extras.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mesmerising, 17 Jun 2010

This review is from: Lost and Found [DVD] (DVD)
This was bought for christmas for our 2 1/2 year old who loves Oliver Jeffers' books and it didn't disappoint. He absolutely loves it and so do I. The animation is just stunning and the music and narration are so peaceful and calming that I never tire of it (and it gets played a LOT). The story is very touching and on first seeing it, our son was visibly moved by the heartwarming ending (I may have wiped a small tear away myself). This is by far the best animation that I have seen and I'll be buying copies for everyone I can think of. Incidentally, I think a running time of 25 minutes or so is just perfect for this story. The book itself is short and simple and this is in keeping. And it doesn't seem to bother our son, because when it finishes he just presses play and watches it all over again!
