Lost and Found - DVD review

I am neither ‘anti’ nor ‘pro’ television and accept it is part of our modern day culture, everything in moderation, as they say! My older children have been brought up on a good mixture of toys, books, outdoors, socialising and tv/DVDs as is my youngest Freddie who is now 2.

The latest addition to our collection is Lost And Found on DVD. When we watched it for the first time, the whole family, including Freddie, were transfixed.

Based on the best-selling children’s book by Oliver Jeffers, it is beautifully animated and tells the story of a boy who finds a penguin on his doorstep who he believes is lost and so decides to help him find his way home all the way to the South Pole. The story is narrated by Academy Award winner Jim Broadbent and the music is both moving and exhilarating. The running time is just under 25 mins. If you haven't had the pleasure of watching this then you are missing out. Whatever age you are!
'Nothing Short of Stunning' says The Times - I have to agree...
