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.
