A boy finds a penguin and tries to bring it back to the South Pole, thinking that the penguin is lost. However, the boy discovers that the penguin wasn't lost, and was just lonely all along. This is an amazing story about friendship.

After I learnt from here about this award winning picture book by Oliver Jeffers, then I also check out Amazon UK and would like to see how other customer review on this book. There was plenty 5 stars comment and therefore I decided to buy it for my nearly 2 years old daughter. A very good book for little ones learning how to love and share with others.
