Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not as good as the first I bought the previous book, Lost and Found, for my brother when he graduated high school. The story was adorable and poignant and meaningful, and he really appreciated his present. Now that's he's graduating university, I thought the sequel would make a good gift, but the message isn't one that anyone would want to give to a graduate of any age. The penguin wants to fly, and when he finally finds a way to do so, realizes he doesn't like it because "penguins aren't meant to fly" and he goes home with the boy, which is not very inspirational.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Average Story Read this a couple of times to target audience - not a story that you would clamour to keep as a part of a permanent collection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Jeffers is a genius I am a mother of two and I now collect all of Oliver Jeffers books for them. His wildly creative storytelling and whimsical art work are masterful in their simplicity and addictive in their oddness. My kids giggle at the tales and so do I. His "little boy" series is wonderful and should all be collected. I often give them as gifts to spread the joy around amongst my friends and family.
