A boy suddenly meets a penguin and the boy finds a way to get the penguin back to the south pole where he belongs. But, it turns out the penguin wasn't missing a home, he was missing a friend. ( )

One day a little boy finds a penguin on his doorstep. He assumes the penguin is lost, and makes it his mission to get it back to its home. But, once they reach Antarctica (by rowboat, improbably), the boy realizes the penguin wasn't looking for help getting home - he was looking for a friend.

There's a beautiful ~25 minute short film of this book, with a few added scenes, voiceover by Jim Broadbent, and lovely music. ( )
