Have you been feeling lost or alone?

Sometimes we need a friend to help us find our way.

“Once there was a boy and one day he found a penguin at his door.” And so begins Oliver Jeffers story of a little boy, helping a penguin to find his way home.

This delightful picture book story has all the usual Oliver Jeffers fun—colourful illustrations that communicate so much meaning, quirky details, and an uplifting and heartwarming message that kids and adults will love.


The boy is determined to help the penguin and assumes that he must be lost. But when he leaves him in the South Pole, he realizes that the penguin was never lost—he was lonely.

He was looking for a friend.

Sometimes we need a friend to listen to us, help us manage the good and bad weather in life, and keep us company.

Helps with: feeling lonely, the importance of companionship, friendship, hugs, teamwork and listening.
