Up and Down

By Oliver Jeffers, Illustrated by Oliver Jeffers

In this much-anticipated sequel to the internationally best-selling picture book Lost and Found, we re-visit 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 boy’s 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.
