Lost and Found Reviews


`An uplifting story...pictures of such spare beauty...suffused with a dreamlike quality.' Independent Online

`Oliver Jeffers makes impressive use of space in this affecting story of friendship...illustrations capture feelings of loss and loneliness through the most delicate nuances of facial expression...and body language.' Julia Eccleshare, The Guardian

`One of the most perfect stories in recent years featuring... one of the best conclusions in all of children's fiction. I can't wait until my nephew is old enough to read this with me, but until then, I'm more than happy to read it to myself. A minor masterpiece and one which will remain with you forever.' Bury Free Press

`Jeffers has a unique writing and illustrative style. It's a wonderful picture book.' Publishing News

`My picture book of the year, a joyful exploration of the power of friendship.' Irish Independent
