Description
From the illustrator of the #1 smash hit" The Day the Crayons Quit "comes a humorous, resonant tale about the value of shared experiences.
A penguin has wings for a reason . . . doesn't he? Having a best friend with his own airplane is one thing, but actually experiencing what it feels like to fly by himself? Here is one penguin who believes this is precisely what he needs to feel complete. Only . . . if flying by himself is so wonderful, then why does he feel so empty?

Because some experiences are better shared. (And penguins are much happier on the ground.)

Oliver Jeffers delivers the perfect companion to his much-loved "Lost and Found." Penguins everywhere will take flight in delight.
