lost and found - the film......

Lost and found and day 7 of a photo a day....

I love kids books, and this one is one of my favorites. It is Lost and found by Oliver Jeffers and it has just been made into a little animated 25 min short film. Woooo hoooo!
It will be shown on Christmas day on the ABC, but I can't wait until then, I had to buy a DVD copy NOOOOOW! 

Oliver Jeffers is a lovely children's writer and illustrator and the detail he captures with the little penguin is gorgeous. I just want to give him a big cuddle and rub my face in his tummy 
(by the way I'm talking about the penguin - not Oliver).
 
We have a few more of his books too which we highly recommend. His story telling is simple, very imaginative, and real for the little listeners who are captivated by his tales.
If you would like a copy of the book head to Amazon.

Thanks to the lovely cuddly girls at We heart books for alerting me on the short film. Check out their lovely blog and site for other cute reads.
