Boy Meets Penguin



This is just so lovely. Euan found it online this morning and showed it to me. He also pointed out that there is one Oliver Jeffers title which we don't have, and so obviously I have been delinquent in my duties as a parent.

Oh my! This book is such a treasure to our family and the animation looks perfect. Do you know anything more about the film? I've got to do some internetting it looks like.

Reporting back to say that it's a 30 minute film that aired in the UK last Christmas. It came out on DVD in April, but only available in region 2--not North America. I sent them an email asking when it will be released here, but I don't expect an answer. I just hope they do!

Patricia, you would be a sucker for a penguin story wouldn't you? You know a thing or two about them yourself! http://storms.typepad.com/
And Marita, I'm so pleased to hear that your boys are Jeffers fans. I don't know if it matters what kind of computer you're on, but we have one Mac that we have left set to play UK dvds ever since we fell in love with the movie version of Magic Roundabout.
