Editorial Reviews Review Amazon Best Books of the Month, December 2010: Oliver Jeffers has created a n enchanting story of two friends, a boy and a penguin, whom we first met i n. In Up & Down, the penguin dreams of flying--he has wings, after all--bu t nothing seems to be working until he spots an advertisement looking for a living cannonball. The penguin's excitement overtakes him and he sets off to fulfill his dream without telling the boy, only to realize later how muc h he misses his friend. Fortunately, the boy and the penguin are soon reuni ted, because it's all well and good to fly through the air alone, but the b est part is having a friend to catch you on the way back down. Wonderfully expressive illustrations complement this story of independence and friendsh ip. --Seira Wilson From School Library Journal K-Gr 2-Once upon a time, in a book called Lost and Found (Philomel, 2006), a penguin appeared at a small boy's doorstep. Since that adventure, in which the two traveled to the South Pole in a rowboat, the boy has crash-landed his plane on. 40p pp.
