In this much-anticipated sequel to the internationally best-selling picture book Lost and Found, we revisit the boy and the penguin after their trip to the South Pole...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.


"Full of heart" Irish Times "Visually witty, poignant and spare, it is sure to stoke the author's huge popularity" Culture, Sunday Times "Jeffers's minimalist style enhances this touching and funny story about friendship, and even though the illustrations are so spare, they convey beautifully the emotions of the characters and contain little details which children will love" School Librarian "Touching" Daily Express "A lovely story about friendship and caring" The Independent on Sunday
