Up and Down by Oliver Jeffers

It's hard not to love Oliver Jeffers' quirky stories and delightful illustrations.

Up and Down is a happy return to his well-loved stories about a little boy and his friend penguin. This time it is penguin that drives the story forward - he wants to fly. Together they explore how best to do this.

As per usual, half the story takes place via the illustrations. I can spend hours just pouring over each page, chuckling at the humour and wallowing in the pathos.

Jeffers view of friendship leaves us all with a sense of hope.

I love hearing from you but I understand that blogger commenting can be a frustrating experience for many.

Make sure you're logged into your account before writing your comment, otherwise blogger will eat it. I have occasionally found lost comments by hitting the back arrow button.

A recent discussion with blogger admin revealed that the ability to post comments "is sensitive to both cookie and script filters. Your readers may need to enable (stop filtering) 'third party cookies', in their browser and on their computer. And, have them check their script filters, too. Third party cookies filtering, in a browser setting, is the most common solution. Filters are subject to update, by the creator. If the problem started a few days ago, your readers may have to look on their computers, and find out what product or accessory was updated, a few days ago."
I hope this helps. Using a different browser for a while was another suggestion.

All anonymous comments will be deleted.

If all else fails, you can contact me on my fb page or twitter.

Thanks to another increase in spam comments I have now added word verification on ALL posts.
